From my point of view I want to keep an eye on the people I’ve been watching in Doctor Who series even after leaving the show. This is one of this cases.
You may know and remember Noel Clarke for playing Mickey Smith, boyfriend of Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) in Doctor Who until leaving the regular cast in 2006. Since then the actor-writer-director-producer has been mighty busy and Radio Times writes about it.
Having written hugely successful movies Kidulthood and its follow-up Adulthood (which he also directed), Clarke has recently landed a part in the much-hyped Star Trek sequel alongside fellow Brits Benedict Cumberbatch and Alice Eve.
Today (Friday 15th) sees the release of his latest offering, Fast Girls, which he wrote and starred in â€“ a feel-good movie about a group of girls training for the 2012 Olympics, only you wouldnâ€™t know it’s London 2012 as halfway through the shoot Clarke was informed he couldnâ€™t mention the words “Olympics” or “2012” because they were copyrighted.
Radio Times also says that:
Fast Girls â€“ warm, sugary and uplifting â€“ represents Clarke’s desire to make varied films. His successes with Kidulthood and Adulhood led to the industry consigning him to the ‘grime’ genre: “I wrote loads of films that were different, and people weren’t interested – they just wanted another hood movie. So I said, well I kind of grew up in that environment, but it wasn’t me. If it was me, I probably wouldn’t be writing, d’you know what I mean?”
I hope you enjoyed watching the movie Fast Girls. Anyway, you can find more information here.
