A Hollywood actor visited a secondary school to show his support for its ongoing anti-racism project.
Actor and director Winston Ellis, who stars in The Pirates of the Caribbean films and The Dark Knight, made a special trip to Redden Court School, Cotswold Road, Harold Wood, to do a talk as part of its innovative project Rainbow Nation.
Winston gave an “inspiring” talk to Year 9 and Year 10 students, telling them about filming, well known actors he has worked with as well as his own life story.
He also encouraged the students to work hard and to follow their dreams.
Rainbow Nation director and head of art at the school, Meg Ryan said: “Winston is a wonderful role model for young people - his talk was inspiring and he encouraged our young people to aim high and to set themselves achievable goals.”
