Daniel Kerr from Glasgow is one of more than 30 nominees for this year's Bafta New Talent Awards, which recognise stand-out work across several categories including acting, writing and animation.
The first-year Bearsden Academy pupil said his nomination was "amazing".
He said: "It just feels amazing to be nominated, I can't believe it.
"When I told my dad when I was younger that I wanted to be an actor, I never imagined I'd be nominated for a Bafta."
The winners will be announced at a ceremony hosted by broadcaster Muriel Gray in Oran Mor, Glasgow, on March 21.
