Winner acceptance speech by Jack O'Connell for EE Rising Star Award
Winner acceptance speech by Jack O'Connell in the EE Rising Star Award category
Jack O'Connell: Thank you, very much. Public vote, so I guess the people have spoken, in that sense. Now it is my turn. Good luck.
Listen, I remember I was part of a TV workshop in Nottingham, that is where I cut my teeth, as it were, taught by a wonderful man, a very committed man, Ian Smith. And we won a BAFTA at some stage, I am not sure what the category was but we had our own BAFTA. The one we had there was a bit heavier but that is all right. I remember being that age looking at this thing feeling very inspired by it and now all of a sudden I find myself with me very own version. Speaking of which, are all these spare BAFTAs tonight? Has anybody claimed them? I should have brought a bag, Mickey. Anyway, thank you very much ladies and gentlemen, have a pleasant evening and see you again.
