Ashley Walters takes up the spotlight for Hunger’s “Take Back Control” issue. After celebrating its tenth anniversary earlier this year, the magazine launches its twenty-first edition with multiple cover stars, including Walters. Photographed in a director’s chair, Walters stands out in a sporty orange number from the BOSS x Russell Athletic collection.
English actor and rapper Ashley Walters appears before the lens of photographer Derrick Kakembo for the occasion. Meanwhile, Femi Ayo styles Walters in relaxed, colorful numbers. Ayo highlights new pieces from various brands, such as Levi’s Vintage Clothing and Rafael Kouto.
Transitioning from acting to directing, Walters confesses, “It was like breathing fresh air.” The Top Boy’s actor continues, “If I’m honest with you, I enjoyed it more than I probably do acting, and I know I shouldn’t say that, but it feels a lot more natural.”
Discussing the next series of Top Boy, Walters explains, “The characters are getting older, as we are as actors, so I think it’s important to follow that journey.” The 39-year-old actor adds, “Does someone who does that job, if you want to call it that, want to be in that job forever?” Read more at HungerTV.com.
