Shaun Parkes talks about playing Frank Crichlow in 'Mangrove'
Shaun Parkes talks about not knowing who Frank Crichlow, the man he plays in Amazon Prime Video's Small Axe series was when he met Lenora Crichlow, 10 years earlier. He reveals that only last year, he discovered he was going to be playing Frank in a movie based on his life in Notting Hill, as a restaurant owner who had to deal with police brutality. He discusses with interviewer Alexandra Heilbron how everyone should be able to understand the frustration Frank goes through in the movie, because we've all dealt with bullies at one time or another.
Mangrove - Episode 1 of Small Axe, is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
