Morgan Freeman honours co-star of Dolphin Tale

Veteran actor Morgan Freeman paid tribute to flippered film buddy Winter this weekend. The dolphin co-stars with the Hollywood legend in his latest family-friendly movie, Dolphin Tale, but Freeman is in no doubt as to who will make the headlines.

“I know Winter is the real star of the movie, so I just try to ingratiate myself,” said Freeman.  “I don’t mind being upstaged by anything, as long as I keep working.”

Dolphin Tale, which also stars Harry Connick Jr, Ashley Judd and Kris Kristofferson, is based on the true story of Winter’s rescue from a crab trap in the waters off Florida’s coast and how she was nursed back to health by the staff at the Clearwater Marine Hospital.

Freeman plays the talented Dr Cameron McCarthy who creates a new prosthetic tail to replace Winter’s damaged one, ensuring her total rehabilitation.
