Daniel Radcliffe, the “Harry Potter” star, was filmed learning how to spell his name and signed, “I Love You.” This was posted by a Facebook group named, “Meet Stars With Sign Language.” Check it out:
Daniel also did a British version of his name.
Cool! This Facebook group is a Deaf British group that regularly meets various celebrities and teaches them basic British Sign Language and film it. They have many British celebrities signing and fingerspelling in BSL on their page.
I reached out to them about how this FB page was started. They said a Deaf person from the group regularly went to take pictures with celebrities as a hobby — and when she noticed that many asked how to sign “thank you” or their name — they decided to start filming and posting.
As it gained in popularity, they continued to do this, asking various stars to film them — first asking for permission. The stars are often happy to learn sign language and do spread it on their social media.
Nice! Check out their page at the link below. :http://bit.ly/2nmhnMh
