A young actor from St Albans is starring in a Golden Globes nominated TV show.

Henry Meredith, 10, from the city, has taken on the role of Maxim in season two of critically acclaimed TV show The Great.

The show which stars Golden Globe nominees Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult is loosely based on the rise of Catherine the Great in Russia. 

Henry who has previously starred in movie The Gallery appears in the final two episodes of the new series.

Speaking to StAlbansNews, his dad Jon Meredith said he is incredibly proud of Henry who is following in the acting footsteps of his older brother.

He said: “Henry started auditioning at the beginning of last year and starred in The Gallery, and then from there came The Great.

“He’s really enjoying it he had the time of his life on The Great. He made himself a little countdown chart of how many days were left until the release.

“He’s really pleased with himself and has watched the scenes he is in but can’t watch much else.”

Jon added that Henry was chuffed to work alongside the famous names on set who couldn’t have been friendlier.

He said: “At the end of filming Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult gave him a silver engraved stapler which has relevance to the series. He loved it. 

“He wants to do more acting and is looking forward to what’s coming next.”

Henry also recently starred as Fleance in The Tragedy of Macbeth at the Almedia Theatre alongside Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan.

All episodes of season two of The Great are available to watch now in the UK on streaming platform Starzplay, which is available via Amazon Prime Video.
