Sade Malone, aged 20 from Leeds, will receive £5,000 to complete the BA in Acting at Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA). Sade is being mentored by Naomie Harris.
At the age of 14, Sade landed the part of Agnes Addo on the BAFTA-winning CBBC programme 4 O'Clock Club, a role she played until 2014. Sade is entering her third and final year at LIPA.
Getting the BAFTA scholarship is amazing. A sense of weight has now been lifted from mine and my family’s shoulders regarding finance for the future, and the mentoring opportunities BAFTA can provide is what any young aspiring actress could hope for. I'm extremely grateful and excited for what is to come!
