How To Get Away With Mur­der

TV Plus (South Africa) - - 29 FEBRUARY -

As fresh-faced law stu­dent Wes Gib­bins in thriller se­ries How To Get Away With Mur­der (2014-cur­rent), Al­fred Enoch is charm­ingly in­no­cent and the sleuthing stu­dent of­ten knows too much for his own good. Alf couldn’t be more dif­fer­ent to his char­ac­ter though, ad­mit­ting that he’s ter­ri­ble with tech and doesn’t keep up with trends. Here’s what else you should know about the 26-year-old:

While play­ing Wes has made him a house­hold name, the Lon­don-born ac­tor’s been in far big­ger pro­duc­tions. Fans of the Harry Pot­ter movies (20012011) know him as wizard Dean Thomas. Al­fred’s dad Wil­liam Rus­sell Enoch (91) is also an ac­tor, best known as Ian Ch­ester­ton in Dr Who (1963-cur­rent) – he played the role un­til 1965. Al­fred’s mom Bal­bina is a doc­tor whose fam­ily come from Bar­ba­dos, which is where Al­fred gets his ex­otic looks from. The ac­tor’s not one to go with the flow – he likes to be dif­fer­ent. “I was told by ev­ery­one if I’m go­ing to be work­ing in LA, I need a car,” he says. “So I though that I’m go­ing to try not get a car, be­cause I’m a con­trar­ian that way.” The one thing he did have to con­form to was a US ac­cent. Al­fred had three di­alect tu­tors and ad­mits that he hardly speaks in his nat­u­ral ac­cent any­more, some­thing that his Bri­tish girl­friend misses. Not only isn’t he on so­cial me­dia, Al­fred ac­tu­ally has a pho­bia of Face­book, Twit­ter and other plat­forms. He doesn’t look that tall on How To Get Away With Mur­der, but he’s ac­tu­ally 1.9m tall – tow­er­ing over lead star Vi­ola Davis (An­nalise) at 1.65m. While he works in TV, Al­fred doesn’t ac­tu­ally own a TV set.
