We were delighted that Edith could take an evening out of her busy television and radio career to host our 2012 Awards ceremony. Edith, who is originally from Anstruther, Scotland, has been involved with BAFTA for many years, having presented from the red carpet and backstage at the Orange British Academy Film Awards in 2010 and in 2011 .
Edith commented, “I am delighted to have been asked to host the British Academy Scotland Awards 2012 . The event is a brilliant showcase of the moving image industries and highlights the wealth of talent here in Scotland.
“Over the past year, Scotland has cemented its reputation as a leading player in film, TV and game production. So much fantastic work has been produced and I’m very excited to see who wins from the list of nominees.”
Jude MacLaverty, Director of BAFTA in Scotland, said, “It is fantastic to have Edith hosting this year. Edith understands the industry and is passionate about encouraging and celebrating talent here in Scotland. She’s perfect for the job.”
