Following a ceremony in the City of London’s Guildhall, actor Damian Lewis took part in a Question and Answer session for an invited audience which included Christ’s Hospital Year 11 pupils James Trickey and Jasmine Pepler, along with their drama teacher Caroline Kelley.
Jasmine and James said: “The day had been eagerly anticipated by all three of us; the session began with a round of applause and as Damian Lewis began talking we learned about his life as an actor, which proved very interesting as he shared his opinions on acting, theatre and film.
“He spoke about his time in school and how his parents reluctantly allowed him to audition for the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
“After being successful in his audition he went on to perform at several theatres before moving on to film and television.
“When the time came for the audience to ask questions, James was quick off the mark, hand straight up for the first question on how to perfect an accent.
“After the questions were over there was an immediate rush to grab a photo with the man himself.”
