A seriously ill teenager from Northolt got the chance to meet James Buckley on the set of his new film ‘The Comedians Guide to Survival’, thanks to Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity and Red Rock Entertainment Ltd.
17 year old Luke is currently living with Neuroblastoma and is being treated at University College Hospital. He is a big fan of comedy and was delighted to be given this behind the scenes experience along with his best friend Jake from Ealing, who has stood by him throughout his illness.
Diagnosed in 2012, Luke has undergone extensive treatment including chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery and stem cell rescue, however he has now been told there is no further treatment available to him in the UK.
The exclusive meet and greet took place at the set of James’s new film, ‘The Comedians Guide to Survival’, directed by Mark Murphy, and produced by Red Rock Entertainment, which sees James take on the true life story of James Mullinger and his journey around the world to discover the secret of comedy. Luke was able to enjoy an exclusive behind-the-scenes view of the film set, before spending time with James during a break in filming.
The set visit was made possible thanks to Rays of Sunshine’s corporate partners, Red Rock Entertainment, a film investment company, based at the world famous Elstree Studios in Borehamwood. Red Rock Entertainment supports Rays of Sunshine by sponsoring wishes and enabling our wish children to take part in some exclusive experiences within the film industry.
Luke, commented: “James was so down to earth, just like his character Jay from the Inbetweeners! It was great to be able to hang out on set and hear some industry secrets. Thanks again to Rays of Sunshine and Red Rock Entertainment for inviting me down for such a great day.”
