Top Boy’s Ashley Walters opens up on ‘worry’ over his future after hit drama

Top Boy: Season 3 official trailer on Netflix

WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Top Boy. 

Top Boy star Ashley Walters has opened up on the “bittersweet” ending of the Netflix series that he has worked on for more than a decade.

Season three of the epic London-based gang drama dropped this month and subscribers couldn’t help but binge-watch its entirety as soon as they could.

Of course, this is the third and final outing of Top Boy with the streamer announcing it was soon to be done and dusted with earlier this year.

There were plenty of moments from the get-go that made this third series one to remember and rounded off the story for good.

But fans aren’t the only ones sad to see its ending as Dushane star and executive producer Ashley Walters has talked of leaving the show behind.

He stated that even though he is grateful for the show, he is unsure of what the future is going to look like without Top Boy in it.

Walters told GQ: “In all honesty, it’s bittersweet.

“There’s a huge part of me that’s thinking, ‘Oof, what’s gonna happen after?’ Because you never know. That’s the thing with this job: you never know.

“And Top Boy’s been such an anchor for me.

“It’s been such a defining factor in other work-related things in my life, that I do worry sometimes about what happens when that’s not there.”

Bar Top Boy, fans will best recognise Walters as rapper Asher D in the noughties band So Solid Crew.

But as he was coming out with hits like Solid, 21 Seconds and They Don’t Know, he was also trying to pursue a career in acting and producing.

He had worked on Grange Hill, Bulletproof, Boys, The Bill, Top Buzzer and Hustle, long before Dushane came into existence.

As of yet, there has been no word on what the 41-year-old will get up to next but it’s safe to say Top Boy won’t be returning any time soon.

With the police after him for murdering Jeffrey (Sean Dingwall), Dushane tried to flee with Sully’s (Kane “Kano” Robinson) so he could move to another country.

This didn’t go according to plan when Sully caught up with him and just as Dushane was climbing over a locked gate, his former friend and business partner shot him.

The pair had a heart-to-heart but their time together was over as Dushane died from his injury in an alleyway.

Top Boy is available to watch on Netflix.
