Landing a multi-episode role in my first BBC production felt an important milestone. I was doubly thrilled as the TV drama series is one of very few to be set in my home city of Birmingham. I worked with series regular Dido Miles, playing a businessman and her love interest.
I have the pleasure of acting on a weekly basis at immersive theatre venues and events. Immersive theatre involves a lot of improvisation, detailed character development and imagination and keeps me sharp as an actor. Pictured is my most recent incarnation as a cowboy bootlegger at Moonshine Saloon in London.
King Of Crime
King of Crime will be my first UK film to be premiered; cinematic release is October 2018. It was surreal working with actors I’ve grown up watching on screen, like Vaz Blackwood, Claire King and Mark Wingett. In the film I play Mo, a ruthless terrorist and henchman. The film is all action and in the tradition of bygone British gangster movies, but with some striking modern twists.

Beautiful in the Morning
I have been passionate about this film project from the off. I landed the lead male role after three rounds of auditioning in which I hired more than one acting coach to prepare. I was drawn immediately to the character Nick; he's complex, enigmatic and a social misfit. He provided the sort of the challenge I'm always searching for as an actor. The feature is now in post-production with an anticipated release in 2019. It was written and directed by Flavia Casa. Flavia has her own production company, Caritas Films. I'm grateful to have been named ‘Best UK Actor’ for my work in the film at the London International Motion Picture Awards 2019.
When you've grown up on a diet of James Bond and Indiana Jones, the opportunity to play an action-adventure hero was a dream come true. Audi selected me as their lead in a unique five-part mini series to launch the Q8, the most luxurious SUV in Audi's fleet. The series follows the adventures of Quentin (pictured), as he searches for answers as to his abduction and abandonment in the desert and the fate of his wife Sandra. I got to film in some incredible locations in South Africa and Germany.
Television comedy is as thrilling for me as serious drama. I have a lead guest role in a new sitcom for Zee TV, a major Indian television network. Zee is creating new content for its international markets and Lala's Ladiez is its first-ever English adaptation. It was a joy working with the regular cast on the show, which included Kulvinder Ghir - one of the biggest names in British Asian comedy. My other credits include two seasons as a regular in Nigeria's uber popular Jenifa's Diary and a guest role on the Netflix and E4 hit show Chewing Gum.
