BAFTA/L.A. tapped seven members to its board of directors Thursday, expanding the panel from 15 to 18 industryites.

New appointees to the Brit board include actor Ian Abercrombie, distribution and marketing exec Duncan Clark, talent manager Melanie Greene, producer Paul Heller, former British Film Office director John Houlton, producer Julia Verdin and president of Granada Entertainment USA Anthony Root.

The elected members will each serve a two-year term alongside returning board members and BAFTA exec officers, including chairman Gary Dartnall, managing director Katy Haber, treasurer Nicholas Hippisley Coxe and executive director Donald Haber.
