Stars of Hollywood blockbusters and British television have been helping Greenhouse’s drama participants create a new film.
James Purefoy, star of Resident Evil and television’s Rome, joined stage and television actress Sheila Hancock and Adulthood/Kidulthood actor Red Madell and others at Greenhouse White City Youth Drama (GWCYT).
The six actors each spent an evening filming with the senior members of the programme based in the heart of London’s White City Estate.
They stared in different narratives written by the young people about their response to their world coming to an end.
Sheila Hancock, said: “I was delighted to come down and work with the talented young people on the programme.
“Drama teaches self respect, discipline and is fun. Anything that taps into young peoples’ creativity is wonderful as acting isn’t just about talent.”
The film is being edited and it’s hoped it will be screened in the summer.
GWCYT is a community club for 9 to 18-year-olds which encourages young people to try their hand at drama, from performing classic plays to developing their own pieces under the guidance of theatre professionals.
The programme gives young people the chance to experience theatre and develop their life skills whilst making friends.
