In the last episode of our inaugural season Emma Lister speaks to actor Rhoda Ofori-Attah. Born in Ghana but raised in the UK, Rhoda trained at the Oxford School of Drama. Some of her credits include: The Bill (ITV), Coronation Street (ITV), Silent Witness (BBC), Cold Feet (ITV) and Informer (BBC) among many others. She plays Miss Griffiths in the new season of the BAFTA nominated show Top Boy (Netflix).

She discusses that program, her preparation for her role in Top Boy and the moment on stage when she realised she had found her calling.
