The Homeland actor was invited to switch on a laser display at Acland Burghley School in Camden, north London, to help the school mark 50 years since its opening.
‘It seems to me that this evening is about a celebration of our community here in Tufnell Park and he role the school has played here in Tufnell Park in the last 50 years.’
Lewis, whose wife Helen McCrory stood in the audience as he addressed a crowd of around 450 before starting a countdown to a laser show, said he had lived in the area for a decade.
Referring to his Eton education, Lewis said: ‘I was very lucky at my schools to having a thriving creative community. I believe sincerely that the success of schools is greater when there is a thriving creative community within the school.’
Speaking from notes he concluded: ‘I share with you the hope that Acland Burghley can continue to grow and be a beacon of curiosity, independence, creativity and diversity right here in the heart of Tufnell Park.’
