A SCHOOLBOY actor from Greenock is celebrating after landing his first feature film part.

Blair MacAldowie is only 11 and has already been an extra in Trainspotting 2.

Now he has landed a role in Mike, Michael and Me, a short film produced by the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland about a broken family.

Blair, of Gateside Gardens, said: "My agent asked me if I wanted to go for the part, so I went to the Conservatoire and the director asked me a few questions.

"I ended up getting the part of Michael.

"The film's about a dad and a mum who have split up and the dad wants to get back together with the mum and they meet in the park with their son Michael."

Blair is a Lady Alice pupil and will move on to Inverclyde Academy after the summer.

He has been acting since he was eight, starting off with the Greenock Players.

He is also a member Inverclyde Musical Youth Theatre, Clyde Youth Theatre and Vivace Theatre School in Glasgow and recently took the lead role in Singin' in the Rain at a west end theatre.

He lives with his mum Debbie and big brother Kerr, 15, and his dad Keith is also very supportive of his acting career.

Debbie, 44, who works at the Royal Bank of Scotland mortgage centre, helps backstage at his shows.

She said: "This is his first named part.

"The director said he did really well, followed the direction and did what he was asked."

Blair has big ambitions and would like to move to America in the future to pursue his acting career.

He said: "I want to move to Florida, there are more opportunities out there."
