Seven-year-old Siena Afsar has landed a role in a TV medical drama.

The Bradford schoolgirl (pictured) will appear in the new series of Monroe, starring James Nesbitt (pictured above) as a neurosurgeon.

Filmed in Leeds, the drama is set to return to ITV this spring.

Siena attends Stage 84 in Idle and was in the theatre school’s production of Beauty and the Beast at the Alhambra last year.

She will join the cast of this year’s show, Peter Pan, this autumn.
