has walked away from a pres­ti­gious movie awards with a top gong.

Kevin Les­lie, 26, won an army of fans as Reg­gie Kray in the hard­hit­ting biopic.

Shrop­shire-born Kevin has now beaten off stiff com­pe­ti­tion at the Mar­bella In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val to win the Best Act­ing prize. BRU­TALLY BRIL­LIANT: Kevin as Reg­gie
