Out actor Ben Whishaw have received a nomination for the forthcoming BAFTA awards.
Ben Whishaw has received a BAFTA nomination for Leading Actor for his role in the spy drama London Spy – a drama which follows a gay Londoner looking to solve the disappearance of his boyfriend.
Speaking to THEGAYUK about the series Ben said,
It felt incredibly fresh and I didn’t know what on Earth was going to happen, or what sort of a story I was in even.
I think it’s a fascinating story, a fascinating series, because although I think it is a thriller, it doesn’t really conform exactly to what you expect a thriller to do. It creates its own version of that genre.
The series itself, London Spy, has been nominated for Best Mini series.
Along with Ben’s nomination, Cyril Nri was nominated as best supporting actor in the Channel 4’s Cucumber.
