Portrait no.25

View this post on Instagram

25 of 26 We were absolutely thrilled when pop and rock star Kim Wilde agreed to be photographed to support 26Miles4MND. Kim is married to a good friend of Miles, the actor Hal Fowler. Close mates at school, whilst Miles went into photography and television, Hal decided to take to the stage. It was when he played the part of Cousin Kevin in the stage show of the Who musical Tommy that he met Kim Wilde who was playing Tommy’s mother. That was in early 1996. Hal proposed to Kim in June and on September 1st the same year they were married. Hal’s West End credits include Alex in Aspects of Love, Billy Bigelow in Carousel, Javert in Les Miserables and Arnaud du Thil in Martin Guerre. He’s also acted in many TV dramas as well as appearing on the big screen, most recently in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Kim is obviously most famous for her hit 1981 single Kids In America but she’s also had seven other UK top ten singles. Many of you will know she has been busy touring this year promoting her new album “Here Come the Aliens” which has put her back in the UK album charts for the first time since 1993 reaching no.21! The 26Miles4MND photoshoot took place at Kim’s beautiful 16th century barn conversion in 2015. Little did Miles know at the start of the day that he’d be playing guitar with a rock and pop legend! Slide the picture to see Hal and Miles too. To donate to the MND Association – https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/26miles4mnd

After that we’ll be interviewing and photographing Sarah Ezekiel for another of our 26 MND portraits. We are slowly but surely getting closer to our target (and nearer to Cristian having to run 26 miles – the poor git!).
Here’s a link to Sarah’s website. She creates amzing art using Eye Gaze technology. Well worth a look if you are already thinking about Christmas –

Stories and photos will be on here soon 🙂
