Welcome, welcome, welcome to EPISODE 317 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Following on from last week’s multi-disciplined guest, Pip is joined this week by emcee turned actor ASHLEY WALTERS!Okay - in case you don’t recognise that name right there immediately, let’s bring you up to speed. ASHER D FROM SO SOLID. Ring a bell? DUSHANE FROM TOP BOY! Getting through yet? RICKY FROM BULLETPROOF? Don’t make me get all Biff from Back To The Future and knock on your head to make sure you’re on the same page… Anyway - it’s Ashley Walters! A fascinating chat and as with a lot of Distraction Pieces episodes, one that feels like it’s been on the cards for a minute. The two get down to it and cover it all from getting in shape and being more mindful re: bodies, representation and the path to Bulletproof, working with Noel Clarke and becoming his pal, working with Carol Jackson from Eastenders (sorry, Lindsey Coulson), being multi-disciplined from a young age, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, time spent in prison and lessons learned on release, Top Boy, So Solid, all that good stuff and TOO MUCH to fit into a write up here. You’ll love it.
