Meet the Merseyside teenage actor starring in Judy Garland biopic

A Liverpool teenager has told ITV News that playing the young Judy Garland in a new biopic was "incredible".

Darci Shaw was just 15 years old when she was cast in the film - and got the chance to walk the famous yellow brick road.

Although she didn't have any scenes with Renée Zellweger, who plays the adult Judy, Darci got plenty of opportunities to watch one of her heroes in action, and even received a big box of flowers from the Hollywood A lister.

The film is set in 1968 and tells the story of Garland arriving in London to perform in a sell-out run at The Talk Of The Town nightclub, 30 years after her rise to fame in The Wizard Of Oz.
