Up and coming British actor, writer, and director Nathaniel Martello-White (Misfits, Life just Is, Guerrilla) has joined the cast of Collateral. Previously announced cast include Carey Mulligan, John Simm, and Billie Piper.

Filming is currently underway on the gripping, high-octane thriller, set in present day London. From pre-eminent playwright David Hare, and commissioned by Piers Wenger, controller of BBC drama and Charlotte Moore, director of BBC content, the four -part drama is set over the course of four days, and explores the spiraling repercussions surrounding the fatal shooting of a pizza delivery man. Acclaimed director SJ Clarkson will helm, and the series will be broadcast on BBC two later in the year.

Nathaniel will next be seen playing activist ‘dhari’ in the highly-anticipated sky/showtime six-part series guerrilla, where he stars alongside Freida Pinto, Babou Ceesay, Zawe Ashton, Wunmi Mosaku and Idris Elba.

Written by Oscar winner John Ridley, who also directed three episodes, the series is set 1970’s London during a time of racial unrest, and premieres this week Sky Atlantic and Showtime, on Thursday 13th April at 9pm.

Nathaniel’s work as a playwright has also earned him critical acclaim: blackta, directed by artistic director David lan, opened at The Young Vic in 2012 and exposed the highs and lows of making it as a black actor. This was then followed by torn, a compelling drama about a mixed-race family in south London, at the Royal Court in 2016. Nathaniel also garnered critical praise for his turn in Duncan Macmillan’s sold out production People, Places and Things at the National Theater in 2015.

Cla’am, Nathaniel’s debut short which he wrote and directed, in association with BBC films, recently premiered at the 2017 SXSW festival. The dark, surreal comedy about a local man who becomes convinced that a vast conspiracy is behind the impossibly rapid gentrification of his London area, was nominated for the SXSW grand jury award for ‘narrative short’. 

Nathaniel is represented by The Artists partnership in the UK and ICM partners in the US.
