A talented teenager from Hitchin is set to become a fixture on BBC children’s TV this spring.
Rising star Jade Johnson, a pupil at Hitchin Girls’ School, will appear on our screens from the end of the month in a BBC children’s series adventure mystery called World’s End, about a group of youngsters who find themselves in a remote castle.
Jade, 18, said: “I play Cat Sharpe, a girl whose parents disappeared when she was four.
“She is really feisty and can be rude – but mostly she is determined to find out what has brought them to World’s End and if it has anything to do with her parents.
“It was great fun and I was absolutely delighted to be part of the show. We filmed over the summer last year in Manchester and in Bamburgh.
