Although there were negative comments in regards to the name change, I think it was a generous step, showing that Bermuda can display appreciation for those who have had outstanding success on and off the island. There are stories shared throughout families of Bermudians who have achieved great accomplishments but, were never truly recognized for them or, rarely remembered years later. The Earl Cameron Theatre will stand for years to come. After moving to Britain after WWII, Cameron made his film debut in 1950 as one of the first black actors to star in a British movie. He has appeared in many films and TV shows including Thunderball (1965), The Interpreter (2005) with Nicole Kidman and Sean Penn Cameron and the Oscar-winning film The Queen. Cameron has received recognition in the UK by being named a Commander of the British Empire for services to the dramatic arts in 2009. A fan of film and the arts, I applaud Mr. Cameron and I’m glad to see him getting the recognition he deserves.
