Homeland actor David Harewood is one of four black British stars featuring in a campaign to encourage minorities to register to vote ahead of the General Election.

They all feature with white skin, to convey the message that if people fail to vote, they fail to represent their community, and remove much of the country's identity.

Harewood, from Small Heath in Birmingham, plays CIA chief David Estes in the American spy drama Homeland.

He joins musician Tinie Tempah, ex-footballer Sol Campbell and Paralympic medallist Ade Adepitan to front campaign Operation Black Vote.
