For the inaugural year of the Ian McKellen Award the standard of applicants was so high that it impossible to choose between two candidates, and so the award was shared between two outstanding young students: 18 year old Owain Gruffydd, who is heading to the University of Northampton to study for a BA Hons Degree in Acting; and 19 year old Laura Baker who will be working towards her BA Hons Degree in Ballet Education at the Royal Academy of Dance.
