On top of this, Hopkins continues, “he is a lovely guy with a really strong moustache, so it’s a no-brainer really.”
As well as some commendable facial hair, Castella brings a shedload of experience to 17 Willow Street. His short film ‘Jamella’ won Straight 8’s Industry Shootout in 2016, and he continues to deliver memorable commercials and branded content at a fair old clip.
For example, Castella shot three monologues for TSB and The Guardian starring Mo Gilligan, Shappi Khorsandi, and Miles Jupp (below) in 2018. In Castella’s hands, Jupp’s chequered history with the opposite sex becomes tragicomic gold.
More recently, Castella showed what can be achieved when time is against you. Despite a mere 10” running time, his Burger King ad sticks in the mind thanks to a couple of fun lead performances and a swift police response. Proof that it's not how much time you have, it's how you use it.
