WHO IS AML AMEEN?
Ameen was born in London, to Vincentian parents. He learned his acting craft at the Barbara Speake stage school in London. As a child he appeared in West End in shows such as Oliver! and Jolson. At the age of 11 he performed on stage with Michael Jackson at the 1996 BRIT Awards, in a performance famously invaded by Pulp‘s singer Jarvis Cocker. Ameen’s first acting role was in 2004′s Bella and the Boys, in which he played the character Terry.
His next role was a one-off appearance in an episode of the BBC television series Holby City. He also starred in the British youth-centred film Kidulthood as the central character Trife and now he’s starring again in Second Chance and Red Tails for a special appearance. He played PC Lewis Hardy in the long-running ITV police series The Bill, his most famous and popular role to date. Lewis Hardy is a headstrong character who has swapped his life as a street kid to try to make a difference on the right side of the law. He has a few problems with authority and regularly bumps heads with his seniors, most especially frequent beat partner PC Roger Valentine. After Hardy was put undercover and was shot, he was transferred to Operation Trident. In April 2008 he played a leading role in the BBC Three teen drama Dis/Connected, playing Anthony, an 18-year-old college student from London who faces gang trouble on the streets, as well as losing his friend when she commits suicide.
Ameen featured in a film on Channel 4 called Fallout, part of their Disarming Britain mini-season. The London Lite paper described this as his most memorable performance. Ameen featured as AJ in Silent Witness Series 12 Parts 1 and 2. He portrayed a youth worker trying to make a difference in the gang and knife community which presides South London, and became friends with Leo, one of the senior pathologists doing community service for drink driving.
