Stagecoach Epsom student shines bright in Netflix’s Extinction

Stagecoach Epsom student Amelia Crouch stars in the American sci-fi thriller, Extinction, which was released on Netflix on 27th July 2018.

Directed by Ben Young, the film is about a father who has a recurring dream about the loss of his family whilst witnessing an alien invasion bent on destruction. Amelia plays the role of the father’s daughter, Hannah, starring alongside Michael Pena, Lizzy Caplan and Mike Colter.

The filming schedule took 14-year-old Amelia to Serbia for 12 weeks, “I missed my family and friends but I really had the best time filming Extinction. I love the acting lessons at Stagecoach and I learned so much from the other actors on set which I’ve already been applying to my performances since I’ve come home.”

Amelia is no stranger to the big screen and can also be seen in Limehouse Golem alongside Bill Nighy, Alice Through the Looking Glass and The Huntsman: Winter’s War to name a few. She was also nominated ‘Best Young Actress’ at the 2017 Birmingham Film Festival for her performance in the short film ‘Belle and Bamber’.

On Amelia’s success, Stagecoach Epsom School Principal, Rachel Crouch comments, “we are so proud of Amelia’s achievements – she works hard across all three disciplines at Stagecoach and is a great example to show other children what’s possible. We love seeing our talented students take to the stage and big screen…it means we’ve made a difference.”

Amelia is not the only Stagecoach Epsom student who has enjoyed success this year. The school has seen students securing places in the West End production of School of Rock, the UK tour of Matilda and the West End run of the Ferryman.
