ACTOR Luke Arnold whose stellar performance as the late Michael Hutchence concluded last night in Network Seven’s telemovie Never Tear Us Apart has pledged his support for vulnerable children around the world, becoming an official ambassador for Save the Children.
The Adelaide-born actor also plays John Silver in big budget production Black Sails that premiered in the USA on 25th January.
In early January 2014, Mr Arnold visited Jordan where Save the Children works with hundreds of thousands of children and family members who have fled the fighting in Syria.
Luke Arnold said: “It is an honour to join Save the Children and support their invaluable work with children around the world. In the crisis in Syria, their attitude is forget the politics, forget the religion, forget the fighting; children and their families need help. Save the Children goes in and helps them.”
Rising star Luke is a graduate from the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts and began his acting career in Australian television.
Across the Middle East, Save the Children teams have so far helped over 950,000 Syrians including more than 300,000 children and family members inside Syria with food, safe water, medicine, shelter and education.
