Mount St Joseph Alumni - Ruth Madeley

Mount St Joseph Alumni Ruth Madeley receives BAFTA Award Nomination.

Former Mount St. Joseph student Ruth Madeley has been shortlisted in the best actress category in the prestigious BAFTA TV awards for her role in the BBC factual drama Don’t Take My Baby, which incidentally is her first lead role as an actor.

This powerful and moving BBC Three drama tells the story of a disabled couple’s agonising struggle to keep their newborn baby; and is based on real life testimony and calls the viewers’ prejudices and beliefs about the disabled community and society as a whole into question.

We wish Ruth good luck and look forward to finding out if Ruth manages to clinch the prestigious award when the winners are announced on the 8th May at the BAFTA Awards Ceremony.
