Ashley Madekwe: 'I Think The Changes BAFTA Made Have Been Really Impactful'
For Ashley Madekwe, this weekend is going to be exciting. The 37-year-old will be attending the BAFTAs - albeit virtually - as she has been nominated for best supporting actress, for her role as mum Toni in UK indie drama County Lines, following one young man’s experience of being groomed into a nationwide drug-selling enterprise. 'I recognised the world of the film immediately when I read the script,' Ashley says. 'I grew up on a council estate in South London, so that environment wasn't unfamiliar to me.'graziadaily.co.uk
