SIX-year-old drama student Max Vento from Guiseley has been busy filming after landing a major role in a new six-part BBC drama.

Max, who attends weekly drama classes at Guiseley-based West Yorkshire School of Performing Arts, has spent 14 weeks filming for ‘The A Word’ on location in the Lake District and Manchester. Max plays a boy diagnosed with autism in ‘The A Word’, which stars Christopher Eccleston and is set to be screened on BBC One later this year.
