London, May 13 (ANI): Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire both claim to being home of the legend of Sherwood Forest, but the actor who plays a young Robin in the upcoming film has declared a concise answer.
Jack Downham, eight, who is from Leeds, announced at the British gala screening of the Ridley Scott blockbuster that the man in green tights is from both counties.
“He”s from Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire,” The Telegraph quoted the young actor as saying.
His mother, Clare Downham, 39, a schoolteacher, added, ””Jack”s such a diplomat. He should be in Number 10.””
””Russell was really nice to me. He was very smiley. It was really exciting and surreal to be in the film. The best bit was getting to meet all the people in the film,”” said Jack, who attends drama school in Leeds and plays Noah Tate in Emmerdale.
Councillor Leon Unczur, who is the Sheriff of Nottingham, said, ””We know that, when Hollywood”s spotlight shines on Robin, even more people will want to come to Nottingham to see where his legendary stories unfolded.
””That”s why we”ve got special events throughout May and why we are looking longer term to develop an attraction that will meet the expectations of visitors on the trail of our famous outlaw.”” (ANI)
