The Scholarship will be awarded to an individual with experience and success in creating drama for the screen, and a demonstrable passion for creating television drama. It is an opportunity for a Queensland creative to learn and capitalize from the prestige and quality of US television drama as part of Screen Queensland's strategy to develop the state's pool of talent in television and long-form drama.
Rising star, Matt Levett, announced as recipient of Seventh Annual Heath Ledger Scholarship. Emilie Cocquerel and Lily Sullivan named Runners up.
For the high calibre judging panel, the choice was not an easy one to make. Emmy award winning casting director, Laray Mayfield (Fight Club, Gone Girl, House of Cards, The Social Network), who joined the panel for the first time this year said, ‘It was inspiring to be on a judging panel where every person was passionate and invested in the result. The decision was not easy as each of the applicants are talented and unique and we are sure they will have long and lovely careers." 'Ultimately our decision was to award the scholarship to Matt Levett. We are all excited about watching his talent and career continue to grow and we are also looking forward to seeing the work the runners up Emilie Cocquerel and Lily Sullivan will do,' she continued.
