Juliet Stevenson: “Our children are our future and their well-being is of the greatest concern to us. Actors pursuing their chosen profession face many difficulties but, when they are parents, those problems can multiply. There can be illness or unforeseen accident in the family, or simply a special need for childcare when acting work has been secured. The Actors’ Children’s Trust is here to help and support actor-parents in any way they can, and I am very proud to be their Ambassador.”
