Seeing as it’s Twelfth Night, let us turn our attention to a bunch that RadioTimes.com predicts will, in the words of the mighty Malvolio, achieve greatness. (Those born great or who have it thrust upon them do not concern us here.) Some you will recognise off the tellybox already and some you soon will. In (almost) the words of the equally mighty Irene Cara, remember their names. *dons legwarmers* Daniel Kaluuya
After appearing in one of last year’s boldest drama series – he played wise-cracking Mac in BBC3’s The Fades – Kaluuya made as much impact on screen as he had on stage, in Roy Williams’s Sucker Punch at the Royal Court in 2010. From Skins, on which he was also part of the writing team, through Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton’s Psychoville, to his role as Bing in Charlie Brooker’s Dark Mirror: 15 Million Merits, his rise has been assured and steady. This year will bring merits all its own.
