The LET Bursary

What is the LET Bursary?

The LET Bursary is a joint initiative from Les Enfants Terribles and WildChild to help support emerging talent through a 3-year undergraduate course plus their first year as a professional actor. Each year, we’ll be selecting an aspiring actor, from a background currently underrepresented in the industry, to join the initiative and help them discover the tools they need to succeed.

The LET Bursary includes:

  • 1-2-1 mentorship from an established industry professional
  • £1,500 per year (£4,500 total) towards your training fees
  • Support from the Les Enfants Terribles team
  • Headshots with a top theatre photographer
  • Joining the network of previous recipients
  • Opportunities to meet industry professionals to grow your career prospects


Previous mentors have included Saffron Coomber (Flack, Emilia), Arinze Kene (Informer, Youngers) and Paapa Essiedu (I May Destroy You, RSC Hamlet).
