An aspiring young actress will star in a campaigning advert to promote human rights.
Chloe Stannage, seven, was cast as the lead part in a short film made on behalf of Benetton's Unhate Foundation which was produced in East London in January.
Chloe, who has attended Redroofs Theatre School in Bath Road part-time since she was three, played a child bride as a way to highlight the issue which occurs in certain parts of the world including Afghanistan.
According to Chloe's mum Sima, Chloe, who attends Furze Platt Junior School in Oaken Grove and was a finalist in The Advertiser's Cheeky Monkeys competition before Christmas, is a natural in front of the camera.
Sima added: "She had a lovely time, she was treated like a star."
"Chloe has a lot of confidence."
The Unhate Foundation is an international campaign which focuses on the fight against hate and discrimination in all its forms.
