He was there as he put it “to help create awareness around the Black bookshop which has been there for over 50 years he continued “that it is a shame that not more people now about it”. We asked him about the role books played in his upbringing “growing up yes i was a fan of books, I would not say it is dying out but less people are reading hardcopy books. there is so much content in the media. I think the magic of storytelling is something that should be continued. I certainly enjoyed reading and i think that was one of the reasons I wanted to become an actor.
