A TEENAGE movie buff from Harrow recorded an interview on the red carpet with Hollywood funnyman Will Ferrell.
Hasina Connell, a pupil at Nower Hill High School in George V Avenue, Pinner, spoke to the A-list comedian as her first assignment after being appointed one of the FILMCLUB charity's young ambassadors who get to represent the organisation at industry events.
The 14-year-old was among only a handful of television journalists to bag a one-to-one chat with the Golden Globe-nominated actor when he participated in a special BAFTA Presents 'A Life In Pictures' event held at Vue Cinema in Leicester Square on Tuesday October 4.
Hasina said afterwards: “I just interviewed Will Ferrell and even though I was really nervous, I thought that it went pretty well.
"For my first quite big interview, I was really happy with that. I was extremely nervous but not as nervous as I’ve been before because I practised a lot and I was really comfortable. And he was really nice, and really funny as well.”
She asked Mr Ferrell - star of 'The Other Guys' and 'Elf' - about his new film 'Everything Must Go' and his comic influences.
He told her: "There are so many! I was a big fan of Peter Sellars growing up and Steve Martin, and the original cast of 'Saturday Night Live'.
"And now, I love Sasha Baron Cohen, Seth Rogan and Jonah Hill, and guys like that – a lot of people.”
At Nower Hill High School Hasina attends an after school branch of nationwide education charity FILMCLUB that encourages youngsters to watch a diverse range of releases.
Hasina said: “I wanted to become a young ambassador so that I could become even closer to today's film industry and production.
"I'm mostly looking forward to taking part in interviewing different people and getting to know more people in the industry and their experiences.
"I love being part of FILMCLUBN because I'm able to meet people who are just like me – with a passion for film!”
