Craig Roberts scoops award for Submarine role

Welsh actor Craig Roberts picked up the young British performer of the year accolade at yesterday's London Critics' Circle Film Awards for his role in Swansea-shot Submarine.

Roberts, who hails from Maesycwmmer, Caerphilly, beat the likes of War Horse star Jeremy Irvine, Saoirse Ronan, John Boyega and his Submarine co-star Yasmin Paige to the award.

Submarine was adapted from the novel by Welsh author Joe Dunthorne, and directed by Richard Ayoade.

Ayoade was beaten to the breakthrough British film-maker gong at last night's awards by Andrew Haigh for Weekend, which starred Cardiff actor Tom Cullen. Cullen in turn missed out on the best British actor award to Michael Fassbender.
