The BAFTA One-to-One event strand delivers talent-to-talent conversations while the audience gets to listen!
In this Pride month edition of BAFTA One-to-Ones, we will be bringing together pairs of LGBTQ+ talent from across the film, games and television industries, where they will share insights and experiences, explore what changes they'd like to see in their respective industries, and what best practice looks like to them.
In our final Pride edition, Strictly Come Dancing’s Johannes Radebe chats one-to-one with actor Layton Williams (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie) about their respective performance careers and LGBTQ+ representation in both the dance and acting spheres.
