Like in all television series there is a likable character like “Bunny” in Mayor of Kingstown played by Tobi Bamtefa. Not a good guy or bad guy but who you hope survives the chaos.
From Academy Award® nominee Taylor Sheridan and Hugh Dillon, Mayor of Kingstown follows the McLusky family, power brokers in Kingstown, Michigan where the business of incarceration is the only thriving industry. Tackling themes of systemic racism, corruption and inequality, the series provides a stark look at their attempt to bring order and justice to a town that has neither.
The British Nigerian actor has been in the industry since 2016. His very first project was in the short film TheTinder Problem. A year later his debut in a full length film was in Lost In London, starring Daniel Radcliffe and Woody Harrelson. Best known for Tin Star, Lucky Man and Netflix’s The Witcher. Last year he was seen in the television series Cheaters and animated Moominvalley.
