Famous faces across film unveiled in Leicester Square
Wet weather didn’t stop a special event taking place this March. In the part of London that is home to our biggest film moments to mark the 350th anniversary of Leicester Square, some of the stars who have walked the famous red carpets over the years were immortalised with a new series of statues. Alicia Edwards went to see them and meet some of the co-stars and relatives the many characters.
The statues include Paddington Bear, Mr Bean, Bugs Bunny, Mary Poppins and Gene Kelly from the iconic ‘Singing in the Rain. They will be in Leicester Square until the summer but it is hoped that they may become a more permanent feature.
