Letitia moved to the UK from Guyana aged six and began acting while still at primary school. After roles in Top Boy, My Brother The Devil and Glasgow Girls, burst onto our screens earlier this year in the Channel 4 and E4 series’ Cucumber and Banana. Letitia will soon appear in Urban Hymn, directed by Michael Caton-Jones, who describes Wright as, “the most exciting young screen acting talent that I’ve had the pleasure of working with since Leonardo DiCaprio on This Boy’s Life”. She was selected as one of Screen International’s UK Stars of Tomorrow in 2012.
Beyond carrying on acting, my ambition is to cultivate a career in a way that’s truly significant, in terms of the projects that I do and the characters that I play. With BAFTA behind me I can continue to make a positive impact in the industry as I continue my journey in acting. I am most looking forward to the mentoring programme and meeting other industry professionals who can guide me towards cultivating a successful career.
