Holbeach actor Steph appears alongside Gary Oldman and Jessica Alba

By Spalding Reporter

It’s show time again for Holbeach actor Steph Genovese whose latest project – which sees him working alongside Gary Oldman and Jessica Alba – hits cinema screens at the end of the month.

Steph, an actor, director, writer and DJ, takes on the role of central character Alice’s dad in the new independent British film Killers Anonymous, released nationwide on Friday.

The picture, directed by Martin Owen, focuses on a support group for killers where the participants sit in a circle of trust and share their transgressions.

“Killers Anonymous was great fun to work on,” says Steph, “It’s very much in the vein of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and although the subject matter is quite dark, there is some great humour in there too.

“My part is quite a sinister one, but I don’t want to say too much as I don’t want to spoil the story for anyone who is going to watch it!

“There’s some great talent in the film. As well as Gary Oldman and Jessica Alba, it also features Tim McInnerny, Sadie Frost and Suki Waterhouse – as films go, I’ve never seen anything like it in the way it’s told. I really hope it’s going to be a great success.”

It’s been a busy few months for Steph, who has previously had roles in Sky One’s Fortitude, Transformer’s Dark Knight and the Star Wars franchise blockbuster Solo, as well as writing and directing his own projects Dishonoured and Forever Your Rose, co-written by Natalie Mills.

He is also set to appear in a new ITV programme Zomboat, about a group of young adults who try to escape a zombie apocalypse on a canal boat, later this year.

And his other forthcoming roles include Al Darkness, in Pennyworth – a DC TV series spin off from the Batman story, focussing on the earlier life of the Wayne family’s butler Alfred Pennyworth .

He also has a part in a new thriller Indulgence, about a writer desperately seeking out his first novel to propel his career.

“I’ve had a busy few months,” added Steph,
“although I actually filmed my part for Killers Anonymous right at the beginning of last year, which seems a long time ago now.

“I’ve had quite a run of sinister parts – such as
Alice’s Dad and a zombie – but that’s not a bad thing. It makes it more interesting as the characters I’m portraying are so different from how I am in real life. It certainly makes it more challenging!”
