A BUDDING actor is banking on a bright future after successfully auditioning for a TV advert.

Ryan Chrystal from Matlock was chosen ahead of hundreds of hopefuls to be part of the new Halifax Super Saver commercial.

The ten-year-old is a student at Ripley Academy of Drama Ltd where he has studied for a number of years.

He has already appeared on the small screen including Skins, Doctors, Dalziel and Pascoe and Casualty.

And his experience in front of the camera clearly paid off after he sailed through numerous rounds of rigorous auditions in London to land the role.

Felicity Cutting, principal for the drama school said: “I was really pleased to hear that Ryan had been chosen for the part.

“He works very hard in his drama workshop and is talented young member of the academy.”
