From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:27 pm on 23 May 2016

Keagan Carr Fransch will soon be able to count Laurence Olivier, Judi Dench and Vanessa Redgrave as her fellow alumni of London's Royal Central School of Speech and Drama where she has just been awarded a place in the Masters in Acting (Contemporary strand) course. Originally from Zimbabwe, Keagan was granted an audition in Sydney last month, where she was the only New Zealander there auditioning for that particular course, and the only person of colour. The Masters course accepts only 14 - 16 actors each year.
