Rising star Micheal Ward currently stars as the titular role in Netflix’s new flagship drama TOP BOY which was released globally this September. The highly-anticipated resurgence of the show follows on from the critically acclaimed original series on Channel 4, and hit the headlines after it was announced that Drake and LeBron James would be executive producer of the series. In April, Drake dropped the first-look trailer at the start of his O2 Arena show to much excitement, introducing fans to Micheal’s character Jamie, a young, hungry and ruthless gang leader that has taken over.
Later in 2019 Micheal will play a lead role in BLUE STORY, the highly-anticipated debut feature film from UK grime artist and director Rapman (a.k.a Andrew Onwubolu) whose ground-breaking music and short film trilogies became a viral sensation.
Previous roles for Micheal have included Brendan in the BBC’s coming of age drama THE A LIST and the documentary film RUDEBOY: THE STORY OF TROJAN RECORDS, about the integration of Jamaican music into British youth culture where he played the part of a younger Roy Ellis.
With his career starting in music videos, Micheal has credits alongside Giggs, Lily Allen and Tom Walker.
