Black Star: Amma Asante
I was introduced to Amma Asante by a director friend of my -many moons ago. Sweet and unaffected, this multi talented lady -is pretty fabulous. An actress ('Birds of a Feather', Desmond's, Veronica, The Bill and off cause Grange Hill), writer ('A Way of Life' and 'Brothers and Sisters'), producer ('Brothers and Sisters') and director (of the award winning 'A Way of Life' -a provocative and bleak” portrayal of working class life in modern Britain. A must see drama about teenage angst -racism, hope and tragedy -it stars Brenda Blethyn and Michael Conway). Amma is not just a competent director, she is also a mean dresser. I have spied this uber groomed beauty out and about (in London) -dressed in high-end apparel with the most fabulous accessories. Keep on keeping Amma.
