Birmingham actor David Harewood has shown his support for National Transplant Week by telling his loved ones in a video that he has signed up to be a donor.
In the video, the Homeland star says: "It means that in the event of my death, my organs can be used to give somebody else the gift of life or help somebody that might be really, really ill.
"It's important we talk about this and that you understand why I'm doing it. You ok with that? Good. Right, I'll go and put the kettle on. Fancy a cuppa?"
