Every year, the European Shooting Stars chooses ten of the best up-and-coming acting talents.

Other actors that previously received the honour include Irish actors Domhnall Gleeson and Ruth Negga.

According to RTÉ Entertainment, the jury were impressed with her “great acting range and superb instincts” in The Nightingale, which won the Special Jury Prize at the Venice International Film Festival earlier this year.
