A young Romford model is celebrating his biggest acting role – in a festive short film seen by nearly 50,000 people.
Baxter Willoughby, a winner in the Mall’s 2009 Get Into Fashion competition, has appeared in adverts and music videos since achieving local fame.
But the 10-year-old’s role in Mark Potter’s “Our Christmas” – which sees him saying goodbye to a friend – is his biggest yet.
It rounds off a big year for Baxter, who recently appeared in a music video by upcoming band Kodaline.
Proud mum Jane said the “All My Friends” video cast Baxter in a new light.
“Baxter was very pleased to get away from his normal type of role, which is all dressed up and smiling,” she said.
“He played an inner-city boy who gets taken in by a gang and mixed up with crime.”
Three men will today go on trial at Snaresbrook Crown Court for the rape of a woman in Romford last year.
