Morgan Freeman

Legendary actor Morgan Freeman has slammed Britain for failing its black actors. The Invictus actor claimed that Britain needed to ‘catch up with the times’ explaining the reason why so many black actors have chosen to pack their bags and chase the American Dream. The 75-year-old told the Telegraph:

I know at least three actors who left Britain for the States because opportunities for them here in the UK were limited… The British film industry definitely has more work to do on that front. It needs to catch up with the times; it has much more progress to make.

Actors like Idris Elba, David Harewood and Patrick Robinson all reaching their highest points of their careers across the pond, has Freeman got a point? We all know he has the power to make you nod in agreement with everything he says. Share your thoughts.
