Observations One to Watch: Kurt Egyiawan, Actor, 28


"It was unreal to find myself on set in a MI6 bunker playing Q's assistant," says Egyiawan, who has gone from Guildhall School of Music and Drama to the new Bond movie, Skyfall, in the space of a year.

"I only had about four lines." The winner of last year's Spotlight Prize for most promising drama school graduate is currently playing Louis the Dauphin and Lord Scroop in Henry V at Shakespeare's Globe. Before that he appeared in Headlong's Earthquakes in London and in King Lear and The Frontline, also at the Globe.
