We are delighted to announce that Daniel Ogunsalu has joined our lovely team at Jackson Foster.
Daniel is a London born actor with comedy bones and a particular talent with urban music. Most recently playing the role of Mr Charles in the forthcoming BBC mini series Small Axe, directed by Steve McQueen he is very excited to be broadening his horizons on screen at present.
His early training with Daniel Kaluuya encouraged a positive outlook on life in his urban music and with DJing, stand up comedy, an early rapping stint as well as strong improvisation skills, Daniel brings a broad range of talents to the Jackson Foster team.
