Leopard Club Award 2022 to Daisy Edgar-Jones

Daisy Edgar-Jones is one of the most promising actresses working today. Her talent was honed on the stage but has made a perfect transition to film and TV, capturing the attention of younger audiences and gently taking hold of their many articulations of image and imagination. She is a talent with many surprises in store, and the Locarno Film Festival sees her as an actress sounding out the future
