SPIN’s Sarina Bellissimo caught up with the cast to find out what their mottos for life are, along with
Kane Robinson (Sully) & Ashley Walters (Dushane)
Kane Robinson told Sarina most of the time when he’s interacting with fans, they just want to know when they’ll get to see new episodes of the show.
Meanwhile, Ashley said that the moment he feels himself become Dushane is is “usually when I put on one of the two jackets I’ve worn for two years.”
Saffron Hocking (Lauryn) & Adwoa Aboa (Becks)
Sarina also caught up with Saffron Hocking, who’s back as Lauryn in the show, and Adwoa Aboa who’s new to the series as Becks.
Adwoa shared that she’s had nerves from the moment she started the audition process to the moment she did the interview with Sarina, calling it “mind blowing” that she got a role in Top Boy.
Saffron also opened up about how the stars of the show are close and shared what it’s really like when new members join the cast.

Michael explained to Sarina how the show has allowed him to establish himself in the television industry.
