London: "Star Wars" actor John Boyega and "Fifty Shades of Grey" actress Dakota Johnson are among five new faces who will be in the running for the Rising Star Award at the Bafta Film Awards next month.

Brie Larson, who appears in new drama "Room", and "Kingsman: The Secret Service" actor Taron Egerton are also nominated, reported BBC online.

They are joined by Bel Powley, from 2015's "The Diary Of A Teenage Girl".

The award, which has previously been won by the likes of Tom Hardy, James MacAvoy and Kristen Stewart, is voted on by the public.

Jack O'Connell took it last year following his memorable performance in Yann Demange's stunning feature directorial debut "71".

The BAFTA ceremony will take place on February 14.
