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). In 2019 she was selected for the prestigious BAFTA Elevate Program, designed to support people from underrepresented groups in TV and film progress in their careers. 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.
Rhoda is the first interview in our artist chain after having been nominated by Seeta Patel in Ep. 1.2
