TWELVE-YEAR-OLD Bella Rose has cut her teeth in her first leading feature film role, set to debut at Victoria Point Cineplex this month.

Bella - whose family hails from Capalaba - earned an Australian Screen Industry Network award nomination for best supporting actress for her role as Meg in the film Magdala Rose.

It came after she played a background role in Aquaman, parts of which were filmed on North Stradbroke Island in 2017.

Bella was not the only Rose family member to appear in the film, with the young star managing to sneak mum Leisa and grandmother Brigette Noonan into Magdala Rose as extras.

"At age 69 this (was) Nanny Brigette's first time working on a film set and she loved it," mother Ms Rose said.

The film also starred Wesley Ford, who appeared on the 2018 season of The Bachelorette, and Gold Logie winner Rowena Wallace.

Directed by Paul Day, the film is set in medieval France and also features a scene filmed at the Redland Museum's blacksmith forge.

During the year-long filming process, Bella found her feet working on a green screen, performing her own stunts, riding a horse and shooting at locations across the south-east.

"She's really excited to see how the green screen scenes come together," Ms Rose said.

Hoping to follow in the footsteps of idol Margot Robbie, Bella has been working hard on smaller roles for the last five years and now has management in the US and in Australia.

"Nanny Brigette, (Bella's) biggest fan, is ready to jump on a plane and travel with her, just in case any (overseas) projects need a film extra," Ms Rose said.

Having acted since she was seven, Bella has amassed a body of work which including credits from more than 70 productions like commercials, children's TV, web series and films.

In 2017, she was named the best supporting actress at the Griffith Film School Drama Production Awards for the short film Paradise.

She has also worked on TV series including Crocamole, Imagination Train and Pipsqueaks.

Bella's international debut came in 2018 on Japanese TV, where she played the role of Neanderthal Girl in a three-part documentary filmed in Queensland.

Recently, she was also involved in the pilot for TV series Welcome to Wrigleton, filmed at Rathdowney in the Scenic Rim.

She is also no stranger to theatre, having performed at UQ's Schonell Theatre and the Brisbane Powerhouse.

Magdala Rose will premiere on November 25 at Cineplex Victoria Point.
