Erkan Mustafa

Sep 13, 2009 Author: Peekay | Filed under: Actor, Broadcaster

For a certain generation Erkan Mustafa will forever be “Roland” (or “Row-Land!”) the boy with the slightly larger frame in what is seen as the classic days of BBC TV Series “Grange Hill”.

In October 2009, as a final goodbye to Grange Hill after 30 years, Erkan is hosting one last Grange Hill Cast Reunion at the Sound nightclub in London’s Leicester Square. The proceeds of the event will go to charity.

You can get your tickets from Erkan’s website.
