British child star targeted on Facebook

London: Child actor Daniel Roche, who played the title role in BBC1 series `Just William`, was targeted by an internet stalker who set up a fake Facebook page in his name.

The stalker used the bogus page to chat to the 11-year-old`s primary school friends and even tried to arrange a meeting with one girl, reports dailymail.co.uk.

But when Daniel`s mother asked Facebook to take the page down, they failed to act until The Mail on Sunday stepped in. The page, which also revealed Daniel`s home address, school and other sensitive details, was finally taken down on Friday.

Daniel, who also starred in the comedy `Outnumbered", is regarded as one of the country`s leading screen talents and was nominated for the best male newcomer at the British Comedy Awards.
