Three Little Birds

From the writing talents of Sir Lenny Henry and Russell T Davies, comes Three Little Birds. This new, 6-part series is a historical drama inspired by Henry’s own mother’s life-changing move from the Caribbean to the UK in 1957.

Named after the iconic Bob Marley song, the show explores the challenges and triumphs of immigration, community, and the strength of the Black community during this significant period of history.

[This was my] first time as a supporting actor. The whole experience was both interesting and very professional. Never been to “Hair and Makeup” before - that was certainly a first. Really looking forward to being on set on Monday for filming. I’ve been very impressed with Uni-versal Extras' administration throughout, particularly with the breakdown of the invoice within a few hours of being on set.

Very much enjoyed the shoot - nice attentive ADs and crew. Hadn't ridden a bike for 55 years but I was told I looked good! Nearly fell off ha ha!
