Drake to Star in London-Based TV Show ‘Top Boy’
At this point, Drake's love affair with London is well-known. Now it appears that his connection to the city will only be fortified. According to the folks at the U.K.'s Daily Mirror, the More Life artist is all set to star in Top Boy, a TV show based in London.
Drizzy bought the rights to the drama series after it was dropped last year, and now the show's producers are developing a major role for him in the series. While Drake had seemingly left the life of an actor behind after he completed his run on Degrassi, there was always at least a decent chance that he'd return to his roots.
Speaking with the Daily Mirror, Top Boy star Ashley Walters suggested it wasn't too surprising to see Drizzy appear on the show. “He loves acting, of course he wanted a part," said Walters, who plays the role of Dushane on the show. "He’s going to be really hands on and is getting stuck into it.”
Walters also offered up a few words on his experiences working with the Toronto rapper. He was surprised by Drizzy's humility.
“He is such a down to earth, nice guy," he explained. “He’s so famous you would expect him to be this crazy character but he’s actually quite boring, in a good way.
Drake's good friend Skepta also has a starring role on the show, and will star alongside Drizzy when Top Boy season three premieres on Netflix in 2018. Stay tuned.
