Jamie Foreman is one of Britains most iconic actors. He is also the son of Britains most notorious gangster, Freddie Foreman. Jamies life has been anything but ordinary. Right from the start, his world was one of contrast and contradiction: he grew up surrounded by Londons criminal elite, living by their code of honour and respect, yet he himself was brought up to be a straight goer. The backdrop of his home life was to differ greatly from his time at school as, at seven years old, Jamie found himself in the unlikely surroundings of a boarding school. The happiness of his family and school life was snatched from Jamie when his father was sentenced to ten years in prison for his involvement in the killing of Jack The Hat McVitie. The subsequent years saw Jamie without the father he adored and the whole family was put under enormous strain. At 14, Jamie decided that his passion was for acting and, having been encouraged by Barbara Windsor, he discovered yet another new environment at the Italia Conti Stage School. Jamie thrived in the acting world and was soon enjoying success on both stage and screen. By the time of his dads release from prison, Jamie had carved a straight career for himself but after years apart, there was plenty of lost time to make up for. Soon, he was dividing his time between acting and assisting with Freddies business. Before long, though, life took a surprising turn when a drug deal his father was heavily involved in went tragically wrong and he was forced to go on the run to America with his dad, which marked the start of a whole new adventure A truly fascinating story of a unique life. From being babysat by the Kray Twins to his life-changing meeting with Lawrence Olivier. Jamies is a compelling tale of a boy becoming a man, of a father lost and found (and nearly lost again), and of the adventure, violence and tenderness that forged an unbreakable father-son relationship.
