The 2015 Constellation Creatives Drama Student Bursary has been awarded to Matt Bhar.
The bursary award aims to encourage and promote greater participation and representation of East Asian actors on stage and screen by easing the pathway for a British East Asian graduating student to professional actor by providing £1,000 towards Spotlight fees, headshots and similar expenses.
Matt is about to start his final year on the BA acting course at Mountview. He said, ‘I am honoured to receive the Constellation Creatives Award of 2015. With your generosity this award will enable me to finance essentials for the remainder of my acting course, but most importantly it has given me an even further drive and determination to succeed in Acting. A massive thank you to Yellow Earth and Orion Lee for this Bursary and I hope you continue to discover more talented East Asian creative artists that are out there!’
The bursary is awarded to a final year drama school student of East Asian origin who in the opinion of the judging panel has best demonstrated in their application and at an audition/interview that they have the talent, skills and commitment to succeed as a professional actor.
The Constellation Creatives Drama Student Bursary is provided by Orion Lee and awarded by Yellow Earth.
