Skins, Dakota Blue Richards (represented by ARG) is currently shooting British indie feature The Fold in Bristol and Cornwall, playing Eloise, the daughter of Rebecca, an Anglican priest.
Set in the Cornish daffodil harvest, The Fold stars Catherine McCormack as Anglican priest Rebecca Ashton who begins a new life in Cornwall following her daughterʼs death in a tragic accident.
Rebecca forms a friendship with Bulgarian teenager Radka Dimitrova and her mothering attitude creates a strong bond between them but when things go too far, she ends up putting her family in grave danger.
Top Talent Agency), former rhythmic gymnast champion of Bulgaria, plays opposite McCormack in her first ever screen role, as migrant worker Radka. Radka is working on the Cornish daffodil harvest, which each year sees around 5000 people come to the UK from Europe to pick flowers, when Rebecca steps in as her English teacher at local youth centre St Piranʼs.
Rebeccaʼs husband Edward is played by Owen Teale. Berlin Shooting Star Jakub Gierszal completes this international line up as Eloiseʼs boyfriend Lukas.
Award-winning young director John Jencks directs, his debut feature. The script is written by Poppy Cogan, winner of the William Morris short script award.

May 2012. The shoot is based in Bristol and Cornwall.
