Fans of Jamaican actor Carl Bradshaw will get an opportunity to meet him tomorrow at the premiere of HAMA movie The Skin at the Deluxe Cinema.
The veteran actor, who is starring in his first Antiguan-produced film, will be joined by fellow cast members Aisha Ralph and Brent Simon at the red carpet event which gets underway at 6 pm, a release said.
The film’s writer and director, Howard Allen, executive producer Mitzi Allen and the rest of the cast, crew, strategic partners, government officials, local celebrities, family and friends will also be present.
Meanwhile, the list of special guests will include award winning Canadian producer and journalist, Shelley James, who will be covering the event for The Toronto Star’s Sway Magazine, and Lisa Wickham’s E-Zone will film the premiere.
“We are really excited about E-Zone being here and want to thank the Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Authority and the Ministry of Tourism for partnering with us and hosting the presenters and crew, not only for the premiere but also taking them to the film’s locations in Antigua & Barbuda,” Mitzi Allen said.
Bradshaw is one of the original cast members of the iconic The Harder They Come and has appeared in regional and international hits as The Mighty Quinn with Denzel Washington, and the highly acclaimed Dance Hall Queen. However, his role in the The Skin will be a departure from his more familiar roles, as it is the first time that he is playing a mystic, a press release from HAMA noted.
“Carl Bradshaw delivers a stunning performance that is compelling and very real,” Howard Allen said.
During the premiere, David Stewart, a former radio and television news reporter and programme director will be the master of ceremony.
After the premiere, fans and other guests will have an opportunity to see The Skin at an advance 9 pm showing.
