In the film Stephanie plays the role of Peg who is living with Alzheimer’s. It shows the challenges and triumphs of living with the disease, and a changing relationship between a nan and her teenage granddaughter. Stephanie has a strong connection to the subject matter as her late father died of Alzheimer’s disease.

Stephanie Beacham emphasises the urgency of supporting dementia research, stating: 

Having witnessed my father’s descent into Alzheimer’s, this film is very personal to me.”   

 “It's one in two of us who will be affected by dementia, and last year it was the leading fatal disease in the UK over anything else. We need to change that, and that can only be done through more research. Please support BRACE Dementia Research, visit their website, sign up to their emails and watch the film. Together we can defeat dementia.”  

Chris Williams, CEO of charity BRACE Dementia Research says,

We’re delighted to be in partnership with Stephanie Beacham and the film Grey Matter. BRACE welcomes Stephanie’s support to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s and dementia; and the charity’s mission to find a cure for dementia.” 

Grey Matter premiered on Sunday 10th December, at London Film Week.

The trailer to the film can be watched below.

These last 12 months are probably the most promising there’s ever been for Alzheimer’s treatments. If you can, please donate and help make more research possible.
