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.”
