Film star Jude Law proved a hit when he returned to his old Blackheath stomping ground to visit the area’s newest library. The Sherlock Holmes actor popped into Number Eleven – the home of Age Exchange – in Blackheath Village for a spot of lunch before posing for pictures.
Law was one of the first members of Age Exchange’s Youth Theatre in the 1980s when the charity was first set up.
The Lewisham-born star is also a former pupil of John Ball and Kidbrooke schools.
Diana Cordwell from the charity said: “Following Jude’s lunchtime visit, Age Exchange’s Friends organisation has written to him formerly asking him to return later in the year for a celebrity interview.”
Age Exchange’s new library was officially opened last year as part of a £870,000 new reminiscence centre run by the charity.

Jude Law has joined director Werner Herzog’s long-in-development Gertrude Bell biopic Queen of the Desert. Described as the female Lawrence of Arabia, Bell worked extensively in the middle east and was responsible for establishing what would become the modern framework for Jordan and Iraq. She worked for British Intelligence during World War I, and was key in the dismantling of the Ottoman Empire and subsequent founding of Iraq. Robert Pattison is already onboad to play T.E. Lawrence (ie. Lawrence of Arabia), while Naomi Watts is poised to play Bell. THR reports that production is set to begin in March 2013 in Morocco.
Ridley Scott had also been developing a Gertrude Bell biopic of his own with Angelina Jolie, but it appears that Herzog beat him to the punch. Law is next set to film Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel and will be seen in February in Steven Soderbergh’s thriller Side Effects.
