Katie Jarvis

By now, you've probably heard a lot about Katie Jarvis, the young star of Andrea Arnold's festival hit Fish Tank.
She was discovered at a train station by the film's casting director, who spotted her having a heated argument with her boyfriend and asked her to audition. That is quite a story, and a lucky break for Arnold, who found in Jarvis the perfect actress to portray Mia. In her film debut, Jarvis has been wowing critics and audiences across the board, and once you see the film, it's easy to understand why.
It was recently announced that the film's U.S. release is scheduled for sometime in 2010. I hope it catches on. Jarvis is a natural, and it would be a great injustice if she wasn't recognized for her stunning first performance.
