Chosen by Screen International as one of their Stars of Tomorrow, East Midlands actor Jordan Myrie has played some major roles in a number of high profile TV dramas over the last few years.
Most recently he starred in ‘The Strays’, a Netflix Original film about a privileged biracial woman whose carefully crafted life starts to unravel when two strangers, Carl and Dione, turn up in her suburban town. Jorden played Carl, opposite Bukky Bakray who played Dione.
In 2022 he played Kobi in the award-winning BBC Three drama ‘Mood’. The limited series told the story of a wannabe singer who has to navigate the world of social media and the fine line between liberation and exploitation. The series won an RTS Award for Best Limited Series and was nominated for 3 TV BAFTAs. In the same year, he had a major part in all 6 episodes of Channel 4’s darkly comic prison drama ‘Screw’, playing gatekeeping guard Raheem Bennett.
He starred in the Jed Mercurio produced ‘Stephen’ about the murder of Stephen Lawrence. He played Stephen’s younger brother Stuart in the drama series which was nominated for a number of BAFTAs and RTS Awards.
In 2021 he played Martin Johnson in the critically acclaimed Amazon Original crime thriller film ‘Get Gone’.
Jorden was born in Bolton and raised in Derby in the East Midlands. He has a hybrid Derby / London accent and can focus fully on either. He is of Jamaican heritage so is also able to adapt to a Jamaican accent easily and has used this in stage performances. He regularly works on screen in a London accent (The Strays, Mood, Stephen). He has used RP in Bridgerton and on stage, as well as a General + Southern States American.
