Girl lands role in Merlin TV series
Anya Beth Davies, a pupil at Ysgol Dewi Sant, auditioned for a role in the BBC fantasy-adventure programme last February in Cardiff.
And it wasn't long before Anya, from Heol Buckley, found out that she had been successful.
The Mark Jermin theatre school trained schoolgirl began filming indoor scenes in Cardiff by February, before going to France with her mother to film outdoor scenes for the show in March.
Anya's mum, Kelly Davies, said her daughter had really enjoyed her experience.
"She had a great time on the show, she can't wait for it to come on," said Kelly.
"She is one of the girls who gets saved by Vikings in the show and had quite a lot of acting to do.
"The cast of the show made her feel really welcome and she made friends with everyone.
"She is so good and we are all very proud of her."
The show is expected to air on BBC at some point in August.
Thanks to the South Wales Evening Post for the news!
