Two promising young Welsh actors have been shortlisted for the most prestigious awards in London theatre, the Laurence Olivier Awards.
Aneurin Barnard has been nominated in the category of best actor in a musical or entertainment (for his role as Melchior Gabor in Spring Awakening) alongside seasoned performers including Rowan Atkinson, Bob Golding, Tony Sheldon and Alexander Hanson.
Meanwhile, his Spring Awakening co-star Iwan Rheon has received a nod in the best supporting performance in a musical or entertainment class - and will battle it out against Sheila Hancock, Maureen Lipman and Kelly Price for the gong.
