National treasure actor Patrick Stewart said that making an advert for Yorkshire Tea has been a “career highlight”.
The 82-year-old actor is famed for his roles in Star Trek and the X-Men film series but recently shared his rather more unexpected starring role on Twitter, as he portrayed an employee at the tea company.
The advert for Yorkshire Tea sets the scene for a leaving party of one of the company’s employees, Tina. Stewart then delivered an emotional leaving speech that sounded fit for the theatre stage.
Stewart said: “Ah, Tina. The void so hollow that you shall leave. The emptiness felt within these walls where only the soft weeping of the forgotten river berates.
“Shall we not hear again, chanting echoes of your laughter, or the sweet rasp of your stapler. We must, and will, continue. Our love, our dreams, our wishes, ride with you, fair Tina.”
