Stormzy will be making his TV debut in a BBC adaptation of Malorie Blackman’s popular children’s novel, Noughts & Crosses.
As a guest star in one episode of the six-part series, Stormzy is set to play a character created for the TV series named Kolawale who is the editor of a newspaper.
Of his role in Noughts & Crosses, Stormzy said: “As a die-hard fan of Malorie’s novels, being a part of this important show is a dream come true”.
The series is currently being filmed in South Africa.
Published in 2001, the dystopian novel focuses on a love story between Sephy and Callum; with the former representing a black ruling class (noughts) and the latter belonging to a white underclass (crosses). If the success of the novel is anything to go by, the TV series will definitely prove popular with viewers.
