One of the UK acting scene’s rising talents, the past two years have seen actor Joshua Blissett grace the big screen and star in one of Netflix biggest shows, with 2022 looking set to be his biggest year yet, as ’TOP BOY’ season 2 releases globally March 18th.
An actor that is probably best known to audiences for his portrayal of ‘Daps’ in Rap Man’s award winning cinema debut ‘Blue Story’ in 2019 and even more so for the character ‘Kieron’ in Top Boy season 1, the 26 year old London resident picks up the baton again in the new season of Top Boy.
Following a story arc that brings out ‘Kierons’ background and character development, the role is one that showcases Joshua’s diverse and adaptive character portrayal. In fact independent film is a platform in which he excels;
“independent film means so much because its like the voice of modern London…its close to my heart. I love independent film from an actors and audience perspective as its so raw authentic and heartfelt”
From Blue Story to Wallander and Top Boy, the showreel is expanding with Joshua a testament to perseverance and following ones dream. His advice for young actors and those looking to make a start in the industry -
“persevere, even when you’re feeling down and wanna stop, it’s good to recognise that and convert that energy and use it to your advantage. Regardless of knock backs and declines, that means you’re one step close to your goal, so you just need to keep pushing”
