Tobi Bamtefa joins Kyle Meredith to talk about the latest season of Mayor of Kingstown, in which he stars as Deverin “Bunny” Washington.
The British-Nigerian actor talks about what it takes to play the character, the opportunity to say big things with the show (especially when it comes to the prison system), and why it became so important to take care of his own mental health. Bamtefa also discusses coming up as a spoken word artist known as Bam Bam The Poet, listening to Jeremy Renner’s music, and what he’s learned from the seasoned actor.
“I remember in Season 1, I did ask Jeremy, I asked him what his process was,” he explains. “He said it quite bluntly: I focus on the truth of the scene. And I took that to heart; I took that and ran with it.”
