“I hope they find a way to make amends, but so far they have only asked me to apologize.”

In a lengthy caption, she wrote: “First of all, I would like to thank everyone who has expressed their support and outrage at the coldly worded email from BAFTA which has so upset me and my family.” Roy would be overwhelmed and too He was in tears and I find it unbearable that he couldn't see the amazing loving messages you left.

“Secondly, you may know that BAFTA has announced that he will be included in their segment. “I have not heard from them, they have not apologized to me publicly or personally and have only asked my publicist to apologise.

Kate continued: “I have received far too many direct messages from family members of deceased people in the British film industry who received similar cold emails and were equally disturbed by it.”

“90 percent of those who work in film and television are working-class people who are not necessarily well paid or treated particularly well.”

“Instead of an apology, which is now unnecessary, I would like a public and lasting assurance that BAFTA is fundamentally changing its policy of sending emails to all bereaved families; Whether that person is a cinematographer, a sound or VFX technician, a costume department, an editor, an electrician, a grip or a carpenter, let alone someone as honored as Roy.

“These people are the heart and soul of our industry and it is a calling.” They regularly have to sacrifice time with their families by missing important events or anniversaries, being abroad for school plays or until Christmas, and not being so concerned with sick relatives care as they would like because they have to work extremely long hours to support their families'.

“If BAFTA is truly an organization that recognizes those who work in this industry, I would like to assure you that this is the last time they will send an email to the family of any of their employees with such a dismissive and cold tone, regardless of whether it is ultimately the person who works in that industry.” Question may or may not be included in the segment.

Added, “And if not, the email needs to be doubly compassionate and celebratory for their contribution.” My stepfather knew the names of every single person who worked on his set, from the cameraman to the caterer, and at one point he hired production because the focus puller had not been paid for. That's what he would have wanted. Thank you again x'.
