Marlon Brando Backs Conservation Effort From Beyond The Grave

Even in death, Marlon Brando is ever the conservationist.

The late actor, who passed away in 2004, is the newest surprise supporter of a campaign to stop development of a piece of rural English countryside.

The area, known for its beautiful farmland and scenic roads, is being threatened by the creation of an industrial storage area — and Brando’s personal assistant, Caroline Barrett, says that it’s a place he loved deeply.

“He loved the beauty and tranquility of Selling and in particular Owens Court Lane,” she told The Daily Telegraph. “The planning application will totally destroy the character of this lane.

“What Marlon particularly commented on were the medieval, Tudor and Georgian listed buildings dotted along the lane, surrounded by the most beautiful natural countryside.

“A few days before he died he said: ‘If only I could see the area and the charming country lanes again’.”

According to the article, dozens of complaints have been issued against the proposed project. Supporters are hopeful that Brando’s passion for the environment, so vocal in life, will carry weight to squash the plans even after his passing.
