Channel 4's latest drama, Accident, features a whole host of familiar face, including the likes of Sarah Lancashire, Mark Lewis Jones, Sidse Babett Knudsen, and Eiry Thomas. With every new series comes an opportunity for new talent to spread their wings, and this is precisely the case for the actor playing Lancaster's on-screen daughter Leona. But who is Jade Croot, and what led her to this role? Accident Mark 20-year-old's first major role, but she's no stranger to performing. Raised in Merthyr Tydfil, Croot began acting at an early age and planned on studying at drama school once she'd finished her A-levels. But as the actor explained to theatre site Stage, she was given an opportunity at 16 to perform at the Royal Shakespeare Company. I have learnt so much on the job and from being surrounded by people who have years of experience behind them, Croot say. Drama school can be a fantastic learning experience for people who want to get into acting, but my journey was little bit different. At RSC, Croot's first professional role was as Helen of Troy in Doctor Faustus in 2016. She then go on to perform as Tullia in the company's production of Imperium. As Wales Online notes, actor has also appeared in Casualty and the feature film Machine, so Croot is no stranger to the screen. Although her role in the accident was no easy task. Leona is survivor of a tragedy that unfolds, and Croot makes sure that she researched as much as she could about what her character would be going through. I watch a lot of Aberfan and I tried to make sure I was doing as much as I could to play the part as truthfully as I could, she told Wales Online. Croot is referring to the 1966 Aberfan disaster, where an avalanche of liquefied slurry from Merthyr Vale Colliery engulf junior school and surrounding buildings, as iNews writes. 116 children and 28 adults lost their lives, and Croot's grandfather was one of the volunteers who helped in the recovery effort. The show and it's setting hit close to home for Croot, as it's filmed around places she grew up. I feel quite passionately about this, because it is often perceived as somewhere where it's no good and it's completely the opposite actually. I'm always proud to say I'm from Merthyr and I always will be. She add: it's give me so much support and I always speak as highly as I can about it because it's something I feel really strongly in that it's given a bad name and people there are wonderful. Accident airs on Thursday at 9 pm on Channel 4.
