THOMAS TURGOOSE

I'M LOVING ANGELS INSTEAD

Thomas Turgoose / 23 YEARS / ACTOR

Grimsby born and bred, excluded from school at a young age. Thomas must be the only kid in the world to charge the scouts of a blockbuster movie 'This is england" 5 quid for them to audition him- genius! Of course he got the part in the iconic movie written and directed by Shane Meadows. The movie gave Thomas a new direction and he has grown into a brilliant actor. Thomas went into that audition not trying to be anything other then himself, his effortless humour and character has taken him far. Putting Grimsby on the map and hopefully inspiring more people to change their lives and take new paths. Well done Tommy!
