Dead Shot

It’s a great testament to an actor when they can take a character who murders a pregnant woman in the opening scene, and make them human, and dare I say, likeable. But when it comes to British actor Aml Ameen, that’s hardly a surprise, as the talented performer’s career continues to go from strength to strength.

To mark the release of the aforementioned, dark thriller Dead Shot, we had the pleasure in speaking to Ameen via Zoom, as we speak about the challenges in playing a role of this nature, and the fulfillment of working with a complex, nuanced protagonist. He also talks about his directing career and his ambitions post-Boxing Day, while we speak about a rather big role he has coming up, playing Martin Luther King Jr in Rustin.

Watch the full interview with Aml Ameen here:


When a border ambush goes wrong, a retired Irish paramilitary witnesses the fatal shooting of his pregnant wife by an SAS officer. After outwitting the SAS, now presumed dead, he escapes, taking his revenge to the dark streets of 1970’s London.
