Cricklewood family win role in TV ad
10-year-old boy tipped for future success

Rease Rowe, who attends Claremont Primary School, in Claremont Road, Cricklewood, was sent for the audition with sister Ellie, 7, after impressing drama teacher Mark Jermin.
Rease has since won another role in and ad and is hopeful of netting a part in a major television drama.
Mr Jermin, who runs a stage school every Sunday at Whitefield School, in Whitefield Road, Cricklewood, said: “He’s cheeky, very confident and a great comedian – a boys’ boy.
“Very few land a job so quickly but the casting director saw him and was impressed.”
At the audition in Leicester Square, proud mum Andrea O’Shaughnessy, who lives with her kids in Cheviot Gardens, Cricklewood, was roped in too.

She said: “We were very surprised because they have only been going a few weeks
“The drama class thinks Rease is brilliant. He always gets the main part at school because he stands up and speaks so loudly. I don’t know where he gets it from because I’m quite shy.”
The advert was filmed at McDonald’s in Neasden and will be shown from February.
