Ashley Thomas aka Bashy Confirms Role in New HBO Series ‘Crime’

You may have noticed Bashy has been quiet on the music front and has been in the States for a minute now. Just as we were starting to wonder if it was a permanent move, the reason for his 6 month layoff has finally been revealed.
Ashley announced on his Instagram that he’s spent 4 of the 6 months in New York shooting a new drama series for US TV giant HBO called #Crime and landed the part from a “self-tape”.

While we can only hope its half as good as Top Boy, we have to commend Bashy for conquering new territory and continuing to inspire. With no broadcast date confirmed as yet, we may be waiting a while to check out his new role but you know we’ll have the latest updates when it lands. Congrats Bashy
Thomas has also previously appeared in TV and film productions including Shank, Noel Clarke’s 4.3.2.1, The Man Inside and Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror.
