Man Crush Monday: Ed Skrein

Our Man Crush Monday this week is actor Ed Skrein.  The London-born actor made his feature film lead debut in the gritty British crime film Ill Manors which was written and directed by his close friend, rapper Plan B.  Since then he has had more familiar roles in Game of Thrones and more recently The Transporter Refueled, which saw him replace fellow Brit Jason Statham as lead in the popular French crime franchise.  Catch him on the big screen now opposite Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool

Least likely to…return to Game of Thrones.  Skrein played Daario Naharis in the third season of the popular television series but was replaced by Michiel Huisman in season 4 and cited “…behind the scenes politics…” as his reason for not returning to the show.

Impress him with…some bars (that’s rap verses to the ill-informed).  Prior to starting his acting career Skrein had his first taste of the entertainment industry as a rapper. Don’t believe us? Check out YouTube…

Mention…swimming.  The Deadpool actor was a local community swimming coach and had been since he was a teenager.
