Once an actor, always an actor? Whatever becomes of those children who shine on the big screen? Is a child actor a future grown-up actor, or merely a figure captured by a director for the duration of a film? How much is down to the actor’s craft?

From casting rooms to film sets, a series of portraits of child actors, told in their own words and through the memories of those who’ve since grown up.
