Andrea was joined at the event by fellow co-stars Dame Emma Thompson, 63, who plays Miss Trunchbull and Matilda actress Alisha Weir, 13.

Born on September 26, 2009 and raised in the Knocklyon area of Dublin, Alisha has been plucked from relative obscurity to play the ‘brilliant’ Matilda Wormwood, a schoolgirl with a vivid imagination who dares to take a stand and turn her wildest dreams into a reality, a schoolgirl with a vivid imagination who dares to take a stand and turn her wildest dreams into a reality

It could almost be art imitating life for the young Irish actress, who won the coveted role when she was an 11-year old drama student with little professional experience to speak of.

Before stepping into Matilda’s tiny shoes, the young actress and singer had previously appeared on Ireland’s The Late Late Toy Show, in which she performed a rendition of Cyndi Lauper’s True Colours, and Once the musical at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre.

A brand new take on the Tony and Olivier award-winning musical, Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical tells the story of an extraordinary girl with a vivid imagination, who dares to take a stand to change her story with miraculous results. 

Stephen Graham and Andrea Riseborough play her parents, whose loud and selfish behaviour triggers the quiet observer in Matilda to think up cheeky acts of rebellion and revenge.

Matilda Wormwood finds solace in her inspirational teacher Miss Honey, played by James Bond star Lashana Lynch, who encourages her pupil to conjure her own fantastical tales. 

Bookworm Matilda is excited to attend Crunchem Hall but is surprised to find out the school is an ominous and oppressive place led by the wicked Miss Trunchbull.

As well as kind Miss Honey, the bright lights among the meanness are story-loving librarian Mrs Phelps (Sindhu Vee) and Matilda’s newfound school friends.

Directed by Tony Award-winning director Matthew Warchus (Matilda The Musical), the film is produced by Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan for Working Title, Jon Finn (Billy Elliot), and Luke Kelly of The Roald Dahl Story Company.

Screenwriter Dennis Kelly adapts the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production for the big screen, with original music and lyrics by Tim Minchin.
