Last night Covent Garden’s Royal Opera House hosted the 2012 British Academy Film Awards and here at Creativity Media, we had our fingers crossed for a London born and bred actor, writer and director nominated in the Orange Wednesdays Rising Star category.
The co-writer, lead actor and director of Anuvahood, and one of the stars of forthcoming feature Outside Bet, Adam Deacon successfully took home the award voted by members of the public and his loyal fanbase of ‘Deaconettes’. His acceptance speech demonstrated his enthusiasm in inspiring a new generation of creative talents from all backgrounds, a later interview expresses his interest in mixing up roles and crossing cultural divides.
Here’s his acceptance speech. We’re all absolutely thrilled for him, may this be the first of many.
