‘Top Boy': Drake Returns To Acting In British Street Gang Drama
Drake is going to return to acting after buying the rights of British street gang drama, "Top Boy." Last year, the rapper was reported to be interested in buying rights of the Channel 4 show, as the broadcaster dropped it in 2013 after doing only two seasons. The Canadian singer is going to play a major role in the show, according to reports.
Actor Ashley Walters, who plays Dushane, said producers had a meeting with Drake last week to talk about the show. According to the 34-year-old actor, Drake wants to play a part in the show as he loves acting. "He's going to be really hands on and is getting stuck into it," The Daily Mirror quoted Walters as saying.
The last time Drake acted was in "Degrassi: The Next Generation." He acted as Jimmy Brooks in the Canadian soap for six years, starting from 2001. However, his commitments in music did not allow him to focus on acting. In the UK, he presently holds 23 positions in the singles chart. Thanks to him, now the British show might have a third season in 2018 on Netflix.
Even though "Top Boy" was dropped by its broadcasters after only two seasons, it was critically acclaimed for representing the authentic street culture in London. Canoe notes that Drake has previously expressed his appreciation for the show. He tweeted in 2014 to praise Walters and other actors for his "incredible" performance.
The 30-year-old rapper earlier expressed his desire to get back to acting. He said he would love to act in a film, as that was the life he lived before. He said it'd be interesting to live that kind of life again. Meanwhile, Walters hailed Drake for being "down to earth." "He's so famous you would expect him to be this crazy character but he's actually quite boring, in a good way," he said.
