Adam Deacon - Adam Deacon Eyeing Prime Minister Meeting To Discuss Youth Issues
Emerging British actor Adam Deacon has reached out to U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron for a meeting to address youth issues in the country.
Deacon, the recipient of the Orange Rising Star Award at this month's (Feb12) BaftAs, is keen to use his newfound fame for good and recently became an ambassador for Charles, Prince of Wales' young people's charity.
And the actor, who left school in London aged 15 and lived in a hostel, is eyeing a meeting with Cameron to discuss how to improve prospects for British youngsters following last summer's (11) riots in the country.
He tells Britain's Daily Star, "I don't think (Cameron) is listening to young people and I think he should. I'm up for having a meeting with him and talking to him about what he can do. Talk to me, man! It's all good him talking to his MPs but he needs to talk to young people.
"I've just become an ambassador for The Prince's Trust, which was a personal request of Prince Charles. I met him and we spoke for half an hour and it was so surreal.
"I don't want to be one of those celebrities who go there for the photo opportunities. I actually want to get involved in a couple of charities and get the money where it should be. I think the Prince's Trust is doing amazing work and I am so happy to be a part of that."
