A BUDDING actor has seen his career go full throttle after landing a part in an advert for one of Europe’s biggest adventure parks.

Thomas Kilroy’s fledgling career has already been a rollercoaster ride and now he has a major role for the Chessington World of Adventure.

In the advert the ten-year-old, of Sunnymede View, Askern, plays youngster Jack who tells his friends about the thrills and spills on offer.

The Norton Junior School pupil has also had a call-back from soap Emmerdale and has had a voice-over part for Microsoft. He has been a member of Doncaster-based drama group Starstruck Academy for around a year.
