Screen International has unveiled their 2014 list of U.K. Stars of Tomorrow, up-and-coming young actors and filmmakers with bright futures in the film industry.

With past lists including the likes of John Boyega, Will Poulter, James McAvoy, Andrew Garfield, Carey Mulligan and Aaron Johnson, it’s pretty safe to say that they have a good record of forecasting rising stars you may want to keep an eye out for in the future.

“Everyone included this year is on the cusp of a hopefully stellar career in the British and Irish film industries and I hope people will take note. I’m very much looking forward to seeing how they fare in the future,” said Screen International contributing editor Fionnuala Halligan.
