“I’ve been watching the BAFTAs since I was a kid. I think what they do, internationally, is amazing. That outreach, and those scholarships; I think the whole set-up is wonderful, encouraging creativity in the screen industries. I fully support this campaign and truly believe in what BAFTA does as an educational charity.”

Eddie Redmayne, BAFTA Ambassador
