A teenager from Guiseley is starring in a new CBBC series.
Fifteen-year-old Sade Malone plays the part of Agness in the 4 O’Clock Club, which goes out on Fridays at 5.30pm.
The part is the first big TV role for the Menston St Mary’s student, who attends her mum’s stage school. Sade has been dancing since she was four, and has already been carving out a fledgling acting career.
Her proud mum Lynne Malone, who runs the L M Stage School, said: “She has done things like adverts before but this is her first main part. She has also done theatre work but nothing like this.”
Sade spent 13 weeks in the summer filming in Bolton, staying Monday to Friday in a hotel for some of the time.
Lynne said: “It was hard work but it has all been worthwhile, she enjoyed every minute and has made some really good friends and got great experience.”
The programme centres around a teacher and his younger brother who both have dreams of becoming rappers. It takes its name from the school’s detention period.
Sade, who plays the part of a bit of a know-it-all, was delighted to be given her big break – a feeling her mum shared.
Lynne said: “I was very proud. She was just really excited. She has worked very hard over the last few months of the summer. It is not all fairy stories – she has handled it really well.
“Sade would love to fulfil her dreams of becoming an actress when she leaves school.”
The first episode of the 4 O’Clock Club went out in the middle of January and the show will run for 13 weeks.
