SOUTH LONDON actor Emmanuel Imani is gearing up for his first Hollywood film alongside Oscar winners Kevin Costner and Tommy Lee Jones.
Criminal, which will also star BAFTA Award winner Gary Oldman, is an action thriller about an ex-con who is implanted with a dead CIA agent’s memories to finish an assignment.
Emmanuel began his acting career in 2013, debuting in the critically acclaimed Harold Finley directed play A Thousand Miles Of History, and starred in his first feature film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit in 2014, with Chris Pine and Keira Knightley.
He went on to star in the Channel 4 supported indie film Invisible Men last year, which premiered at the British Urban Film Festival.
Along with his role in Criminal, the young actor will also be starring in British Horror film Servants Quarters this year.
He will then head back to the theatre to star in the hugely popular D’Banj-inspired Afrobeats play Oliva Tweest, which will be debuting in Nigeria as part of the Lagos Theatre Festival.
Oliva Tweest first debuted in 2013 at London’s West End to rave reviews, before another at the renowned Hackney Empire last year.
