Congrats to alum Da’Vine Joy Randolph (MIO ‘09)  on winning the BAFTA for Supporting Actress for The Holdovers at the 2024 BAFTA Film Awards!


In her speech, Da’Vine shared her deep appreciation of her co-star, and fellow BADA alum, Paul Giamatti (MIO ’89)!

The BBC’s backstage coverage of the awards, Da’Vine discussed her love of the UK and her training at BADA:

Not to mention fellow US star Da’Vine Joy Randolph, who is a fully paid-up Anglophile. She started her career in London’s West End in Ghost the Musical and before that, studied at the British American Drama Academy in Oxford.

“I used to come in [to London] and see plays and I saw War Horse at the National Theatre, it changed my life,” she said backstage.

“It was so amazing, I called my school [back in the US] and said ‘I’m not coming back, I want to stay here.’ So you guys taught me the classics and I’m obsessed with Pinter and all that stuff.”
