Hetty Feather casting news

12-year-old newcomer Isabel Clifton (represented by Sandra Singer Associates) will star as Hetty in the new CBBC series Hetty Feather adapted from the novel of the same name by Dame Jacqueline Wilson (creator of Tracy Beaker).

Isabel trains exclusively at Singer Stage School in Essex and Hetty is her first professional screen acting job. She will be carrying on the success of the school supplying lead children for shows such as Wolfblood, MI High, House of Anubis, Rocket's Island, Eastenders and Hank Zipzer.

The ten-episode series tells the story of flame-haired Victorian foundling Hetty and her adventures. A timeless and compelling tale, which brings the realities of the Victorian age – good, bad, funny and tragic – to life through the eyes of the boys and girls who inhabit the Foundling Hospital.

Also cast is Gus Barry (represented  by A&J Management) as Matthias, leader of the boys' gang,

The lead writer is Helen Blakeman and executive producer is Foz Allan.
