Interview with Annes Elwy (Mia Owen - Hidden)

Can you tell us a bit about you?

I'm from Penarth, with my mother's side from Llanfyllin, and my father’s side from Swansea. The 'Elwy' part of my name refers to Llanelwy, north Wales, where my grandfather came from.

I trained at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, and after graduating I spent a few years doing various plays, including at The Royal Court in London, which had always been my ultimate dream when I was training, and fully lived up to it. I then decided I wanted to return to screen and keep learning, so I did a few smaller TV roles, before landing the role of Beth in the BBC/PBS production of Little Women, which was huge for me. Since then I’ve filmed two feature films - The Toll, and Gwledd - both of which are due for release in 2020, as well as Hidden of course!
