Robinson: Sully could be Top Boy

Top Boy star Kane Robinson has revealed that his character Sully could usurp Dushane to become a drug kingpin one day.

The first series of the Channel 4 drama saw Dushane (played by Ashley Walters) rising to the top of the underground drug dealing gang in the fictional Summerhouse housing estate, but Kane hinted that the second-in-command could steal the crown.

"Sully could become Top Boy one day, maybe, but I think he'll be a different Top Boy to Dushane. Dushane's more reasonable, calculated. He's like a chess player on the street," he teased.

Kane - also known as rapper Kano - is keeping tight-lipped about the plot of the upcoming second series, in which he reprises his role alongside So Solid Crew rapper Ashley. There is tension between the pair in the final episode of the first season.

"I'm really excited about it. I haven't seen all of it yet," he admitted.

"The season starts with me and Dushane still not seeing eye to eye since he left Sully on the doorstep... But I think you'll see us come together to fight a common cause."

Having killed someone, the 28-year-old revealed that Sully and Dushane are held back by their past.

Kane added: "Some other stuff actually comes back to haunt both Sully and Dushane, Dushane more so. In this season, Dushane is trying to establish himself on another level outside of the drug-dealing and is trying to move beyond that, but obviously, his past will always drag him back."

The second series of Top Boy, which runs over four episodes, will begin on Channel 4 in August. Series one is out on DVD now.
