David Harewood

David Harewood MBE is an actor, director, author and activist. With a career spanning almost 35 years, David has performed on stage with some of the most prestigious theatres and across TV and Film on some of the biggest networks in the world. David is currently filming his final season of Supergirl in Vancouver, a role that alongside DC Comics and Warner Bros saw him make his directorial debut, adding yet another string to his bow of creativity and talent. 

Through his exploration of important and often difficult subjects, David has become a driving force for systematic and cultural change. From his documentary ‘David Harewood: Psychosis and Me’ highlighting his battle with mental health in his twenties, to the influences and injustices that come from simply being born as a person of colour in documentaries such as Black is the New Black, Could Britain Ever Have a Black Prime Minister and Why Is Covid Killing People of Colour?, in addition to his work with UNICEF to protect children in danger – David is a true change maker in every sense of the word. He has helped raise awareness as well as millions of pounds for so many charities, organisations and individuals across our collective global communities. 

In September 2021, his first book ‘Maybe I Don’t Belong Here: A Memoir of Race, Identity, Breakdown and Recovery’ will be published via Pan Macmillian alongside his return home to the UK.

Why Is Covid Killing People of Colour?


In a brand new documentary David Harewood investigates the shocking statistics that Covid-19 is killing people of colour far beyond their white counterparts. By speaking to a number of medical professionals and people who have lost loved ones as a result of Covid-19 his journey takes him much deeper in to socio-economic findings alongside the influence of systematic racism and oppression. We have all been affected by the virus in the last twelve months and this documentary shines a light on specific communities and industry roles. There are some harsh truths, realities and discoveries that this documentary uncovers in an often hard to watch hour of TV.

DAVID HAREWOOD: PSYCHOSIS AND ME


David Harewood: Psychosis and Me was first aired on BBC Two during Mental Health Awareness Week of 2019. What began as a documentary to retrace the steps and look into why David had a breakdown in his twenties, very quickly went on to help break down the stigma surrounding psychosis. The language we now associate with psychosis has changed dramatically for the better. And for many a diagnosis of psychosis is now far less of a taboo subject. Following the broadcast of the documentary visits to Mind’s psychosis pages rose by 107 per cent in comparison to the daily average. Psychosis and Me has gone on to win multiple awards alongside receiving a BAFTA nomination. But what David is most proud of is its direct impact. People still stop him to say thank you, for how it has helped them or a loved one understand and tell their own story of psychosis.
