Hollywood actor and producer LeVar Burton fulfilled one of his deepest passions while in Barbados recently.
He was able to meet with a number of students from primary to tertiary levels while visiting for the Barbados Port Inc. and Organisation of American States, Committee on Ports, Branding Cruise Destinations Seminar.
The actor who is popularly known for his starring role in the hit series Roots as Kunta Kinte, and in Star Trek, as Geordi La Forge is also the producer of a number of educational shows, including the popular Reading Rainbow series. 
Students enrolled in the Barbados Community College’s fine arts programme were told the principles, philosophies and guidelines to embarking on a career in acting. Burton advised them to follow their passion and the results would be determined by their own individual efforts.
Local actress and president of the Barbados Association of Drama Educators, Cicely Spencer-Cross, said Burton was an inspirational speaker especially for young people embarking on an acting career. (PR)
