Ex-Chiswick School student to appear in BBC drama Noughts + Crosses

Ex-Chiswick School student Jonathan Ajayi has a prominent role in the upcoming BBC screen adaptation of Malorie Blackman's highly regarded novel Noughts + Crosses. 

The drama is set in a fictional dystopian society where race roles and power have been reversed. The best-selling novel has just been read by all students in Year 9 as part of their form-time reading and was immensely enjoyed by students and teachers alike. 

Jonathan spent seven years at Chiswick, leaving in 2014 when he went on to The Arts Educational School and then to The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. He has been in several West End productions and is currently performing in The Cherry Orchard at The National Theatre.

You can watch Noughts + Crosses on Thursday 5th March on BBC1 at 9pm.
