Ethan Hawke returns to Romania for Halloween Charity Ball

American movie star Ethan Hawke will return to Romania participate on October 31 in the Halloween Charity Ball due at the Parliament Palace, the organizers of the event report. The president of Ovidiu Rom Association, Leslie Hawke, announced that her son Ethan Hawke will participate to the Charity Ball due on Halloween, while the new Ambassador of the United States, Mark Gitenstein, will deliver the key speech of the night, at the most famous annual event of Bucharest. It is also confirmed that Madonna will donate a personal object which will be auctioned or given as a prize at the tombola.

“Initially I was not sure that we should organize another event of such importance, considering the financial crisis, but the Halloween Ball from this year appears to be the most interesting so far. Hopefully, the people will further support us in our work, through the ball, even if this year they will “have to search deeper in their purses.” Last year we collected over 80 per cent of our funds through the Halloween Ball, directly or indirectly,” Leslie Hawke said.

Ethan Hawke, twice nominated for the Oscar, is shooting now a remake after Moby Dick, filmed in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Malta. Ethan plays the part of the first sailor, Starbuck, while William Hurt plays the obsessed Captain Ahab. After the first Halloween Ball from 2005, Ethan had promised his mother to return to Romania for the fifth festivity of the event. “First I believed that Ethan would shoot in Nova Scotia at the end of October, which would have made impossible his participation to the ball. Just yesterday he called me and said >. Probably that three different air lines will be necessary to take him from one place to another,” the actor’s mother said.
