Big Bafta win for Doctor Who star

Noel Clarke

Doctor Who star Noel Clarke scooped a top prize at the British Academy Film Awards, winning the rising star award.

Clarke, who played Micky Smith in Doctor Who, picked up his Bafta from Hollywood star Shia LaBeouf, who was the rising star in 2008.

After winning Clark offered advice to other people hoping for success too.

He said: "For all the young fans and people out there voting for me out there, work hard and you can do it, I have three words, yes we can!"

The Baftas are one of the biggest film awards nights around, perhaps second only to the Oscars.
