A Box Hill School pupil from Ashtead, near Dorking, has landed a role in a top BBC crime drama.


Phoebe Jones, 14, will play a part in a one-off special episode of Jonathan Creek, which stars comedian and actor Alan Davies, and is scheduled to be broadcast at Easter.


Auditions for the role were held at the end of November last year and Phoebe got the call a few weeks later to say she had been successful.


Filming involving Phoebe's character is taking place on location in Kingston.


"I couldn't believe it when I received the call to say I'd got the part. I screamed and started shaking with excitement and nerves, says Phoebe.


"It is my dream to act professionally both on screen and stage, and to win a role in such a well-known and popular TV programme is an amazing opportunity. I feel I've now got a foot in the door and I hope this part will lead to other great roles.


"This is the first time I've been involved with a TV show so I can't wait to start filming and meeting the other actors.


Teachers at the Mickleham-based independent school have predicted her rise to fame for some time andthegifted actressregularly takes lead roles in their theatre productions.


"It is wonderful to see Phoebe's talent being recognised at such a high level, says Alison van Staden, Phoebe's house mistress at Box Hill School. Phoebe is very determined and remarkably motivated to act, and she has a huge personality.


We are immensely proud of her and look forward to seeing more success in the future.
