Proper football culture in the United States seemingly grows daily, and at the center of where the two meet currently is Ted Lasso.
The hit Apple TV show profiles fictitious Premier League club FC Richmond, which is coached by Jason Sudeikis’ character, Ted Lasso.
Paul Desbaillets recently had the opportunity to speak with actor Kola Bokinni about a variety of topics, including what it’s like being a main character in the show, his love for Arsenal FC and many other things.
Bokinni’s prominence in the show comes from his role as Isaac McAdoo, FC Richmond’s center back who also serves as the club’s resident barber in the locker room.
The London-born Bokinni has also appeared in other hit programs like Black Mirror, Top Boy and Foresight.
Ted Lasso is entering its third season, which is expected to premier during the summer of 2022.
