King of Crime
'More than your average crime film'
-Film and TV Now-
I was the 'muscle' for eponymous Marcus King played by Mark Wingett (Dead Again, Quodrophenia, The Bill). Released in cinemas in 2018, also featured were Claire King (Coronation Street) and Nicholas Brennan from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Finding Fatimah (2017) I had a brief role as Yameen in this 'Funny and heart-warming, hilarious look at the modern British Muslim dating scene' starring Danny Ashok (Four Lions), Nina Wadia (Bend it like Beckham, Eastenders).
I also featured in Imagine (2015) a short which recieved 1.6 million hits on youtube and received Special Mention at the Marbella International Film Festival.
Over the years I have worked with diverse theatre companies such as RAT, Volcano, Voices of the Holocaust and Carabosse and one of my favourite books is Playing Macbeth - An Actor's Journey into the role which Reader's Favorite called 'A thrilling journey' and (with a big slice of hyperbole) 'Monumental' and (hopefully closer the mark) Amazon Audible USA 'Just plain excellent, beautiful language, Loved it''

'Ten million people had been murdered. For fifteen years, atrocities had been perpetrated by King Leopold II of Belgium and his Force Publique in the Congo Free State. By 1909, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle could stand it no longer...'
