He's the latest 'Fan' of the luxury hotel chain.
What to Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Chen Kun and now, Christoph Waltz have in common? Well, apart from being globally recognised faces, they are also ambassadors of the luxury hotel chain, Mandarin Oriental.
Putting their name to the brand, 'fans' are the celebrities who regularly stay at the hotels on their various international travels, and who are happy to be ambassadors. With the fan being the symbol of the Mandarin group, ambassadors for the group are naturally called fans. In a show of appreciation for their support, Mandarin Oriental then donates each fan's fee to their own individual charity of choice, with Waltz's being Medecins Sans Frontieres.
Speaking about the new partnership, he cites the Mandarin Oriental in Paris as his favourite all time hotel, saying: "It’s a lovely building in a fantastic location that provides everything I’m looking for.”
