MMA is a sport very close to my heart, I’ve been a lifelong fan and I’m an experienced MMA commentator, so a role in an MMA-based drama film was right up my street.
I was approached by Shahean Mesdaghi, a talented local filmmaker with an emotionally complex and visually ambitious script. Playing the older brother of the protagonist (Vin Hawke) I had a number of key scenes filmed in and around York.
There was also an opportunity to showcase my screen combat skills in a couple of punch-ups which was a lot of fun!
I’m looking forward to seeing the finished film shortly, and I hope Shahean has a lot of success with it.
