Video: Earl Cameron Appears ‘In Conversation’

November 9, 2016

Earl Cameron took part in an open conversation when he was recently inducted into the United Kingdoms’s first black film and television Hall of Fame, with the 99-year-old Bermudian cited as “one of the first African Caribbean screen actors to break the colour barrier in the UK.”

The conversation, which takes place with broadcaster Samira Ahmed, sees the actor discuss racial prejudice, why he never moved to Hollywood, and his long friendship with Sidney Poitier.

“The Screen Nation Hall Of Frame is a legacy project created by the Screen Nation Foundation to honor individuals of African Caribbean heritage who have made extraordinary contributions to UK Film & Television,” the Screen Nation said.

“In the 60 years since his memorable first screen performance in Pool of London [1951], Earl Cameron has appeared in a raft of features from Sapphire [1959] to The Interpreter [2005].

“In a revealing conversation with broadcaster Samira Ahmed, the actor discusses racial prejudice, why he never moved to Hollywood, and his long friendship with Sidney Poitier.”
