Léa Seydoux up for BAFTA

Léa Seydoux

Léa Seydoux has been nominated for an EE Rising Star BAFTA.

The actress-and-model, 28, has starred in a selection of hits, including Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris and 2013’s indie romance Blue Is the Warmest Color.

Now she could be honored with the prestigious prize at the ceremony on Sunday February 16.

Also in the running is 20-year-old Will Poulter who starred alongside Jennifer Aniston in We’re the Millers and made his screen debut in Son of Rambow in 2007.

Battling the Brit is fellow English actor George MacKay, 21, who has made a name for himself as Eddie in How I Live Now and Sunshine on Leith.

Dane DeHaan, 27, is also in with a chance of winning.

The American star plays Lucien Carr in Kill Your Darlings, the much-lauded Daniel Radcliffe flick about Allen Ginsberg’s life.

He’s also starred in Lincoln and The Place Beyond the Pines and has landed a part in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Completing the line-up of five nominees is Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o, who stars in Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave.

The 30-year-old is a very serious contender, having just scooped the Breakthrough Performance Award at the 2014 Palm Springs International Film Festival.

The EE Rising Star Award is the only BAFTA voted for by the public.

Previous actors who’ve bagged the prize include Kristen Stewart, Juno Temple and Tom Hardy.

The other BAFTA category nominations will be announced on Wednesday.
