Romeo Beckham isn't the only star of Burberry's new holiday video. In between shots of jumping and jiving Junior Beckham, we also glimpsed a blonde girl with a wine-coloured smile and wondered, who is she?

Burberry has made a habit of discovering fresh new modelling talent, and this year the new face in their holiday campaign is 19-year-old is Hannah Dodd, a performing arts student from Leavenheath in England. 

Hannah was signed on by Select Model Management when she was 16 and has since done jobs for Boden, Primark, Nivea and Monsoon. Burberry is her first luxury label, however, and she is understandably thrilled about it. 

"The Burberry campaign was my first big job," said Hannah. "Select have been really understanding as I am in full-time education so my time is limited. I feel so privileged to have had the opportunity to work with such a lovely cast and crew and be part of the amazing Burberry family."

Note that comment about "full-time education": Hannah takes her studies seriously and it's paying off. All that twirling about in the video probably seemed so effortless because it was – Hannah is currently training in ballet, contemporary and jazz dance and musical theatre, "which I think is my favourite as I'd love to get in to acting too," she said. "Being able to do the two things I love most – dance and model – for the Burberry campaign was a dream come true."
