David's tattoos were not only old but also faded when he stood side by side for the video campaign.

David said of the charity, “The fight against malaria is very important to me because the disease remains a major death for children and we have the opportunity to change that in our lives.

“I've been working with Malaria No More UK since 2009, supporting campaigns and helping to shed light on the challenge.

"Your campaigns always use great creativity and innovation to draw attention to the topic, and I am delighted to have met some of the inspiring people who are working so hard to end this disease."

The campaign video also showed David posing in a green room when he had just digitally aged.

David is a founding member of the Leadership Council of Malaria No More UK, which also leads the campaign.

Dr. Pedro Alonso, director of the World Health Organization's global malaria program, said of the campaign: “The emergence of Covid-19 has shown the world how critical our health systems are.

& # 39; It is crucial that the world is back on track in 2021 to meet existing malaria reduction goals if we are to get out of the pandemic.

“By investing in ending malaria, we will not only save lives that would otherwise be lost to this deadly disease. We will also protect current health systems from the dual burden of malaria and other diseases like Covid-19. & # 39;

David isn't the only famous face working with Malaria Must Die. Millions of campaigns can live like this, as Hugh Laurie, Emeli Sande and Peter Capaldi also played in earlier clips.
