On this day in 2008, Kevin was on hand to pay tribute to some of Great Britain’s unsung heroes at the Pride of Britain Awards:
“Also honoured was 26 year-old Ricky McCalla, whose dreams of being a dancer were shattered when he was shot in the neck. He’s now a mentor to young people at risk of getting involved in crime.
Lucky Ricky got Kevin Spacey to hand him his award and Kevin seemed impressed with Ricky.
He said: “He could of responded to this crime with bitterness, anger, revenge. Instead he decided to turn it on its head and said ‘actually that’s not going to do me any good’. He’s now giving opportunities and chances to others.”
