NOEL CLARKE WINS BAFTA
Big Big Big shout out to my homeboy, Noel Clarke who just won a BAFTA for the Orange Newcomer Award at the British Film Awards! The BAFTA'S have to be one of the most prestigious awards in the country, one which every actor aspires for.
This is a big deal, and great news for Noel and for any aspiring film makers and actors. Truth be told, most actors who make it in the UK are from upper middle class backgrounds who go to stage school from the age of 12. Noel went to a normal comprehensive school in West London, and then i met him age 17 at St Charles College in Ladbroke Grove. Even back then at college i remember him saying to me that he wanted to do his thing as a actor, and now the dreams have most defiantly turned into a reality. Just shows what you can accomplish if you set your mind to it.
