I'd like to meet Tom Payne. He's a British film actor who played a main role in film, called The Physician. He had a character of Rob Cole, a simple boy from England at the middle ages. Here is told about how he had to work his long way up through hard work and difficults to become a healer. I think he played very well, he looked very natural in the film. I guess there is not enough only a good playing to play this role but a lot more things is need to know. I mean, you need to know history well, read some special books of those time and stuff to prepare for this role. My question for him is what he had to do to prepare for his role?
Please The LearnEnglish Team tell me whether I wrote my thoughts correctly.
Which mistakes I did?

I watched that film, it was a nice one. As you know the film went to Avicenna's story, a Persian scientists. and I really enjoyed Rob Cole character.

I think helping others is the most important thing so even if some people take it for granted, they’re still helping, so for me it’s what counts.

In my opinion helping charities by celebrities is a good idea because despite of helping them , the other people and fans that fallow their lifestyle encourage to support the poor people and charities.

I live since a few months in Wiesbaden, a beautiful city in Germany. I came from Cameroon to study International Management at the Wiesbaden Business School. The course last 4 years inclusive a semester abroad and a six-months-internship abroad too. I find the courses very interesting and the teaching methods are quite the opposite of to those in my homeland ( Cameroon). I also intend to go back to my country after I've finished with studies. I am so excited, this is the adventure of my LIVE .
