Sir Ridley Scott, director of Gladiator, Alien, Blade Runner, and many others, thanks teachers in his acceptance speech of the BAFTA fellowship, awarded by Prince William of England.
"My teachers inspired me."
During his speech, Sir Ridley Scott explained:
"It is extraordinary what an enthusiastic teacher can do, drawing the student out, igniting independence, encouraging the design of your own future. Teaching is the most important of all professions. Sort that out and social problems will get sorted out. Sounds simple. We've been talking about it for years, but it is absolutely vital."
