You may have noticed Bashy (Ashley Thomas) has been quiet on the music front and has been in the States for a minute now and just as we were starting to wonder if it was a permanent move, the reason for his 6 month layoff has finally been revealed. Bashy announced on his Instagram that he’s spent four of the six months in New York shooting a new drama series for US TV giant HBO called Crime, a part which he landed from a “self-tape”.
While we can only hope it’s half as good as Top Boy, we have to commend Bashy for conquering new territory and continuing to inspire. With no broadcast date confirmed as yet, we may be waiting a while to check out his new role but you know we’ll have the latest updates when it lands. Congrats Bashy. Thomas has also previously appeared in TV and film productions including Shank, Noel Clarke’s 126.96.36.199, The Man Inside and Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror.
