UK SOAP STAR BROOKE VINCENT TWEETS ABOUT KENYAN VISIT

 


 




Coronation Star Brooke Vincent was in Kenya's Bungladesh Slums for a
charity visit this month.
Brooke has revealed how much her trip to the Mombasa slum has made her
appreciate life as her visit nears its end.
The soap star, who plays teenage lesbian Sophie Webster, is among some
of the cast who are visiting to film ITV documentary Corrie Goes To
Kenya to help raise awareness about children suffering from HIV in the
country.
Brooke, 20, tweeted a picture of herself playing with school children
and said: "It's been an emotional rollercoaster for me...These
children's smiles mean a lot!!"
Earlier this month it was revealed Brooke had been reduced to tears by
some of the things she had seen in the slums.
She and co-star Ryan Thomas, who plays Jason Grimshaw performed a play
with the children they've been working with in Mombasa before they
leave.
Brooke was nominated for Best Dramatic Performance From A Young Actor
Or Actress award for her portrayal of Sophie at the British Soap
awards 2008, she was put forward by the panel but lost out to Jamie
Borthwick. At the 2008 Inside Soap Awards, Vincent was nominated in
the category "Best Young Actor".
