Marc Samuelson, Chairman of the BAFTA Film Committee, added: “Noel is an inspiration to me and to many others, for his central and indispensable role in supporting and advocating for diverse voices in the British film industry. It is a multi-hyphen which, at the beginning of his career, managed to cross the line between respected actor and filmmaker. He’s really capable of doing it all – acting, writing, directing, and producing. His authentic portrayal of London life in his critically acclaimed Hood trilogy cemented his place in British cinema and he continues to push the boundaries with his work today. He is building a hugely successful production company, providing opportunities for a wide range of talented people from many under-represented groups.
