As such, Deadline is taking a look at the next generation of British and Irish writers who are making waves in the UK and stand a good chance of landing a hit U.S. series.

Image Source: Disney

With the release of Disney's live-action remake of Aladdin just around the corner, we're excited to see every detail of the new Agrabah. Aside from Will Smith as the Genie, most of the main cast is made up of relative newcomers for whom this is their first big blockbuster role. Naomi Scott, the British actress who plays the brave, strong-willed Princess Jasmine, is no stranger to the big screen, but this is definitely her biggest role to date.

In a sense, Aladdin is bringing Scott's career full circle. The actress got her first screen credits a decade ago with a couple of Disney-branded projects. In 2009, she costarred as "Megan" in Life Bites, a British-produced sketch comedy show that lasted for two seasons. From there, she moved over into mainstream Disney Channel with a role in the 2011 TV movie Lemonade Mouth and an accompanying short, Lemonade Mouth: Somebody.
