In part two of his interview with Shanie Ryan for the #BFIBLACKSTAR edition of Your Cinema, Ashley Walters revealed that he turned down a role in blockbuster film Transformers.
Walters admitted that when he had a meeting at Steven Spielberg’s office before his hit show Top Boy, they had offered him Tyrese Gibson’s role in Transformers. The reason for his decline of their offer, which Walters may be kicking himself for, is that he had already signed a deal for an independent film called Life And Lyrics, so had to turn it down.
He also spoke about running his own production company alongside being an actor.
