Description

A HOLLYWOOD actor who grew up in Tilbury has written a film based on his experiences in the town. London-born Adewale Akinnuoye-agbaje, 44, who has starred in films such as G.I Joe, Mummy Returns and the Bourne Identity, was fostered with white working-class parents in Tilbury while his Nigerian parents built their career and found their feet in the UK. Adewale’s film, called Farming, is based on his experiences as a black child who became a skinhead in the seventies, when the National Front were at their most prominent.
