He is currently in the West Country starring in a new production at Bath's Theatre Royal. The play, called 'Fences' deals with issues surrounding life as a black family in 1950s Pennsylvania.
He plays Troy Maxon, a once gifted athlete, denied his chance at the big time by the policies of segregation.
