Walley picked up the award for his role in Martin McDonagh's critically acclaimed show The Lieutenant of Inishmore. The show ran in London's Noel Coward Theatre last year and also starred Irish Poldark star Aidan Turner.
At the end of last year, following his graduation from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), Walley was also honoured by BAFTA by being named on their Breakthrough Brits list.
