Raffey Cassidy

Worsley-born Cassidy has been acting for more than half her life: the 15-year-old#s career accidentally kicked off when she was seven and waiting for her brother Finney while he auditioned for the BBC’s Spanish Flu: The Forgotten Fallen in 2009. The producers suddenly decided they needed a little girl, invited Cassidy in and she won the part (her brother, who still acts, didn’t. Oops). Since then it’s been one starry production after another, from Tomorrowland with George Clooney in 2015 to Allied with Brad Pitt in 2016 — although her favourite role was playing the young Snow White in Snow White and the Huntsman, alongside Kristen Stewart (‘I had a really cool daily training routine of swimming, gymnastics and martial arts for nine months’). The next big deal is creepy thriller The Killing of a Sacred Deer (the cult film of early 2018, FYI) starring Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman, in which Cassidy’s American accent comes from watching the Disney Channel.


What would you do if not acting?

‘I’d really want to be a fashion designer. Me and my sister are actually making a dress for my mum.’
