I am late posting this news. I only just came across it. But better late than never!
The BEFFTA website announced on the 21 August that British actor David Ajala has been cast in the Hollywood action flick Fast and Furious 6 and is currently filming as I type alongside stars Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Jackson and Michelle Rodriguez.
David first came to my attention in the British flick Payback Season which also starred the “people’s champion” and poster boy for all things “URBAN” Adam Deacon.
The news that David bagged a role in the film has come as a huge and pleasant surprise because several months ago Deacon fans were dizzy with excitement because the word on the Twitter streets was that the Kidulthood/Adulthood/Aunvahood and ‘BAFTA Award winner’ had attended a meeting with the Fast & Furious 6 team to discuss a role.
I wonder what happened next….
Anyway congratulations David. Soon there won’t be any black British actors left in the UK. Hollywood just seems to be snapping them up one by one.
Fast & Furious 6 is scheduled to be released in May 2013
