TWO sisters who attend a Taunton school have been getting used to the limelight after appearing in a prime-time TV drama series.

Queen’s College Junior School pupils Olivia and Ella Higdon were involved in filming ITV’s Sandition, an adaptation of the Jane Austin novel, during the summer holidays.

Set during the Regency era, the eight-part period drama followed a young and naive heroine as she navigates the new seaside resort of Sanditon - much of which was filmed at Brean.

The sisters starred alongside an all-star cast including Chris Marshall, Anne Reid, Rose Williams and Theo James.

Proud mum, Davina, said: “The girls had a wonderful time on set and found it very inspiring being around such a friendly group of talented individuals, all collaborating in their various roles to bring this fantastic production to our TV screens.

“The costumes were pretty awesome too.”

Last Christmas Oliva – now aged 10 and in Year 6 at Queen’s – starred in ‘Eric, Ernie and Me’, a one-off comedy drama screened on BBC 4.

Her younger sister Ella, is aged eight, and in Year 4.
