Born in Birmingham to Barbadian parents, actor David Harewood trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and began his acting career in 1990. He is best known for his role as David Estes, Director of the CIA's Counter-terrorism Centre in the highly successful television series Homeland (2011-2). He has also acted in films including Blood Diamond (2006) and The Merchant of Venice (2004), and portrayed Nelson Mandela on television and Martin Luther King on stage. In 2007, as part of a BBC programme, he visited Viscount David Lascelles, son of the Earl of Harewood, at Harewood House, built in the eighteenth century upon the proceeds of slavery. Harewood’s own ancestors worked on the Caribbean sugar plantations owned by the Lascelles in the eighteenth century, and were re-surnamed Harewood after the project their work financed. In 2016, he presented a BBC documentary called Will Britain Ever Have a Black Prime Minister?, in which he reflected on his own experience of being black and British. Harewood is also an ambassador for mental health awareness, recently revealing his own struggles with manic depression and psychosis; in 2018, he appeared in the documentary David Harewood: My Psychosis and Me. He currently has a lead role in the popular American superhero TV series Supergirl. Harewood was awarded an MBE in 2012 for his services to drama.

Royal Mail and our other regular global couriers have stopped asking for signatures when delivering parcels to customers. In cases where a parcel does not fit through a letterbox, the courier will leave the item at the door, and will step aside after knocking to ensure there is a safe distance while you retrieve your parcel.

In addition, some couriers are experiencing delays at this time. We would be grateful if you could have patience with us during this challenging time.
