Tosin is an American-born, British actor who is known for his role as Ryan Sinclair in Series 11 and 12 of Doctor Who, opposite Jodie Whittaker.

In 2024 he "packs a hell of a punch" playing the lead, Michael Lasaki in the "gripping and addictive" 'Supacell', a major new Netflix series about a group of Black South Londoners, each with their own superpower. The series is written and directed by pioneering rapper-turned-filmmaker Rapman. Earlier in that year he starred in the Bob Marley biopic film 'One Love', playing Tyrone Downie, lead keyboardist and pianist for the Wailers. 

Also in 2024 he received rave reviews playing the co-lead Dre in the Bush Theatre's sell-out production of bittersweet rom-com 'Shifters' which transferred to the West End. 

Previously he played the lead in the re-make of the classic 1990's film 'House Party'.  He played Damon, who whilst working as a house cleaner, decides to throw a huge party at one of his client's houses.   Also in 2023 he played civil rights activist Medgar Evers in the biographical drama film 'Till' about Mamie Till-Bradley who became a major civil rights activist in the 1950s after the brutal murder of her 14 year-old son Emmett by a gang of white supremacists. 

Prior to that he starred in the lead role of Moses Johnson in AMC’s ‘61st Street’, a tense courtroom drama series about racial injustices in the Chicago Criminal Justice system and he also appeared in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

He will soon star in 'Girl from the North Country', which is based on the smash hit Olivier Award winning West End/Broadway musical of the same name, inspired by the songs of Bob Dylan.  He plays one of the leads, escaped convict Joe Scott who falls in love with the daughter of the owners of the guesthouse where he takes refuge. 

In 2021 he starred in the screen adaptation of the highly acclaimed 2018 Royal Court stage production 'Ear for Eye' by BAFTA and Olivier Award winning writer and director Debbie Tucker Green. The film had its premiere at the 2021 BFI London Film Festival.  Tosin also starred in the original stage version in 2018 at the Royal Court.  Other stage credits include playing the male lead in "perfect bittersweet rom-com" (The Standard) 'Shifters' at the Bush Theatre in 2024 which subsequently transferred to the West End, 'They Drink It in The Congo' at the Almeida in 2016 and 'Stop the Play' at Trafalgar Studios in 2015. 

He had a major part in critically acclaimed 2019 film 'The Souvenir' which was nominated for multiple BIFA and National Film Awards, as well as its 2021 sequel which had Martin Scorsese as its executive producer.  'Souvenir II' premiered at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival and had its British premiere at the BFI London Film Festival.  He also had a major role in 2017 action movie 'Unlocked' alongside Orlando Bloom and Toni Collette. 

Other TV credits include Versailles, Lewis and The Cut.

His native accent is London. Dual nationality, born in New York and grew up partially in the US, he can also do a very good New York or Generic American accent.
