From Hollyoaks to Hollywood: Rachel Shenton and Chris Overton on their Oscar-winning night

We were being serious when we were saying we’re so honoured to be nominated, we really, really meant it. We’ve said all along, if this is where it ends, at the nomination, we’re so happy with that and then they read out The Silent Child. We still can’t believe it now.

Rachel Shenton

Rachel Shenton has well and truly swapped Hollyoaks for Hollywood - earning herself an Oscar in the Live Action Short category for her film The Silent Child which she wrote and starred in.

It tells the story of a four-year-old deaf girl who learns sign language with her social worker Joanne in order to communicate - an experience very close to Rachel's heart as her dad suddenly became deaf in his later years. Rachel and her fiancé Chris Overton, who is also the film’s director, join us live from the Andaz Hotel in the Hollywood Hills to share the secrets about their big night in Tinseltown.
