Actor James Norton was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in November 2010.
The star of Grantchester, War and Peace and Happy Valley did not let type 1 diabetes prevent him from bursting onto the acting scene not long after his diagnosis and is now one of the UK’s leading actors.
James supports JDRF and lent his support to the 2016 #T1DLooksLikeMe campaign, filtering his Twitter profile picture and sharing his ‘DiaDigits’.
Speaking on World Diabetes Day 2016 as an ambassador for JDRF, James said:
“I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2010 when I was near the start of my acting career. Managing the condition is a challenge, but I haven’t let it get in my way!
“I’m proud to support JDRF and its #T1DLooksLikeMe campaign.”
