One of Britain's rising acting talents has hit stateside in a BIG way - Aml Ameen is holding his own in The Butler alongside Oprah, Forest Whitaker and Cuba Gooding Junior.

He's been speaking to BBC UK Black about the role he plays as a young Forest Whitaker in The Butler, and the more painful side of filming on plantation.
