Meet the new young star of Absolutely Fabulous

15 year old newcomer Indeyarna Donaldson-Holness joins the cast of Absolutely Fabulous to star as Lola the teenage daughter of  Saffy (Julia Sawalha) in the new movie spin-off from the popular TV series.

This is Indeyarna's screen debut, after playing Young Nala in the West End musical a few years ago. She is now represented by United Agents,

In series five of the TV show, Saffy gave birth to a girl from her Ugandan lover in series five, with Eddie (Jennifer Saunders) declaring her mixed race granddaughter a fabulous fashion accessory, calling it “the Chanel of babies!” Called Jane by her mother, this was soon changed to Lola by Eddie.

The casting call back in June last year was looking for 'a mixed-race 13-year-old girl for a pivotal role in the film, someone who is self assured and cool and naturally finds her mother embarrassing but her Granny amuses her'.

Absolutely Fabulous was filmed on location in the UK and the south of France, and is now in cinemas in the UK and Ireland.
