Holby City superstar Hari Dhillon is The British Asian Trust’s newest ambassador. Hari is best known in the UK as Mr. Michael Spence on BBC1’s top-rated medical drama.
He joins a prestigious team of 21 celebrity ambassadors supporting the Trust’s work from the worlds of media, sport, music and cuisine.
“I look forward to working with the Trust to transform lives,” says Hari. “You can be sure your contribution to The British Asian Trust will be hard at work providing better life chances for the poorest people in South Asia and the UK,” the Holby City star said. “Access to health, education and livelihoods allows disadvantaged people to escape poverty and build their futures.”
Hari was raised in San Francisco, recently lived in Los Angeles and moved to London in 2007 to film Holby City. His previous work in US television and films includes Medium, Charmed, The Loop, Without a Trace, Cradle to the Grave, and Entrapment. He has also performed at the Royal Court Theatre in London, the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, The Magic Theatre in San Francisco, and The Woman’s Project Theatre in New York.
“We welcome Hari Dhillon to our Ambassador’s team with great pleasure,” said Manoj Badale, Chairman of The British Asian Trust. “We are grateful to Hari and all of our Ambassador’s for lending their support to the critical work of the Trust.”
