By day a pupil from Eastbourne, Isabelle Allen is tonight brushing shoulders with Hollywood's A-list as the poster girl for Les Miserables at the film's world premiere in London.
The celebrated novel and stage musical has earned Oscar buzz following its big screen conversion, with Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe playing opposite Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried.
There are also roles for British stars Eddie Redmayne, Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter in the film, which is the vision of The King's Speech director Tom Hooper.
