A budding young actor from Greater Manchester who recently made his big screen debut is to attend the BAFTAs after the film he starred in was nominated for an award.

The film, which was shot in Trafford, tells the story of how a young boy's life is changed by a chance encounter with a musician who's down on his luck.

It's Dylan's first big screen role, following an appearance in the Jimmy McGovern drama Broken in 2017.
