Amazon Prime brings a British comedy for all ages with Get Duked! Four teenagers embark on a mission to complete the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. Although this program is to encourage teamwork, foraging, and orienteering, these kids are eager to get out in the wild to smoke weed.
Among the Get Duked! teen clan is Viraj Juneja (Vera, Doctors). He plays DJ Beatroot, a kid trying to find his identity and present himself as a hip-hop star at the new school. Rian Gordon (Final Score, Outlander) plays Dean. Dean is the kid from a poor background. He looks forward to this final adventure with friends before starting work at a factory. Lewis Gribben (T2 Trainspotting, Limbo) plays the least brightest of the group, Duncan. Samuel Bottomley (Tyrannosaur, Ghost Stories) plays Ian, the complete opposite of this young ensemble. Unlike the others, Ian wants to do everything by the book. He actually wants to complete the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award correctly.
Samuel Bottomley is a child actor from the UK with several television credits and film appearances. Rian Gordon is a Scottish actor that began acting in his teens. I conducted a quick Zoom chat with both. They share a little bit about their experience filming Get Duked! They also talked about eating rabbit droppings in the film, and more.
