LONDON (AP) - British Academy Film and Television Awards says 23 year-old British actress Juno Temple is one of five young stars shortlisted for the BAFTA Rising Star award.
Other actors in the running include Swedish actress Alicia Vikander, British-born Andrea Riseborough, Elizabeth Olsen of the United States and India's Suraj Sharma. The list was announced on Monday.
Temple says she is giddy about the nomination, especially as the winner will be chosen by the public.
Recently seen in William Friedkin's "Killer Joe," she appears in three movies at Sundance Film Festival and will also star with Angelina Jolie in Robert Stromberg's "Maleficent."
The BAFTA Film awards take place on Feb. 10 in London.
