A film staring a former Brighouse actor is currently being shown at the Cannes Film Festival.

Jordan Greenhough, 24, starred in the film The Mask of Sanity, which is being shown until Sunday.

Jordan first appeared in the Courier with his friend Jack Carter back in 2010 when they were given roles in the feature-length Polish film, Sparrow.

The pair met while stacking shelves in Tesco in Brighouse.

Jordan, who now lives in Huddersfield, has also just discover that another short film he narrated, Peter’s Rough Cut, has been entered for the Best International Short Film category at the Holmfirth Film Festival.

That film was directed by Mark Minas from Ovenden, who Jordan also met while working at Tesco.

Jordan said he was thrilled at the double success.

“I’m pleased about what I’ve achieved at the moment but I’m still nowhere near where I want to be which is making this a full time career,” he said.

“But it’s a step in the right direction.

“It’s hard to say what kind of work I prefer. I’ve been told comedy is my strong point but I’m doing more drama at the moment. But just to be a professional actor is the aim.”
