Billy was watching the ceremony at home with his family and his win came as a big shock, he told BBC News from his stage school Sylvia Young. 0wo世界播


"They were playing the clips and I was watching and saying, 'They've won', and was getting ready to clap and then they said 'Billy Barratt' and I was so confused. My whole family was like, 'Oh, my god', so it's very exciting. 0wo世界播


"And it's kind of crazy (to be the youngest winner), I don't know what to think about it. 0wo世界播

"But my teachers and the other students are all really supportive and really nice about it and happy for me." 0wo世界播


Responsible Child was a one-off BBC drama that was shown in December last year. 0wo世界播


It followed 12-year-old Ray who, along with his 23-year-old older brother Nathan, was arrested for murdering their abusive stepfather. 0wo世界播


Both are tried as adults, as the minimum age of criminal responsibility in England and Wales is 10 and the series explores the issues surrounding the law. 0wo世界播


Billy played the central role of Ray and his brother Nathan was played by James Tarpey. It was a tough part for a 12-year-old but Billy said he had plenty of help. 0wo世界播


"I had a lot of people around me like the director, Kudos [the production company], the BBC, all my cast mates, they were all really supportive and in between takes it was all fun and jokes, trying to keep things as light as possible. 0wo世界播


"We had an acting coach and she was really good and she told us how to get in and out of character and leave Ray onset and get back to our lives when we went home." 0wo世界播

Responsible Child was loosely based on the real life case of 14-year-old Jerome Ellis and his older brother Joshua, 23. Both said they killed their stepfather because he was abusive and had previously threatened to kill Joshua, who struggled with depression. 0wo世界播


It also featured Owen McDonnell (Killing Eve), Shaun Dingwall (Noughts and Crosses, Top Boy), Debbie Honeywood (Sorry We Missed You, Vera) and Angela Wynter (EastEnders, Les Miserables). 0wo世界播


Billy said making the drama was particularly "challenging" at times, especially one of the last scenes. 0wo世界播


"Ray is having a freak out and noticing what he's done and that particular scene was very powerful and I had to take a minute afterwards and everyone sat down and had a think about it and readjusted. 0wo世界播


"It was all very challenging and it is a true story so if I got it wrong I would have offended quite a lot of people. That was quite hard." 0wo世界播


Billy has also starred in The White Princess and Blinded By The Light. 0wo世界播


Two days of Billy's week is taken up with learning acting, dancing and singing whilst the other three are for academic work. 0wo世界播


Once he's finished at Sylvia Young, Billy says he hopes to go the London Screen Academy, which teaches everything about film-making, including directing, lighting, producing and costume design alongside acting. 0wo世界播
