Maylandsea: Tattooist lands role in The Sweeney alongside movie legend
A tattooist has bagged himself a part in crime thriller The Sweeney alongside film star Ray Winstone.
Terry Coker, 42, who owns the Cobra Custom Tattoo studio, in Imperial Avenue in Maylandsea, plays a villainous prison gang member who fights Winstone.
The dad-of-two spent two days filming his part in Three Mills studios and Wormwood Scrubs prison in west London.
The film, which also stars Plan B and is out in cinemas now, sees Mr Coker in a fight scene with Winstone and handing out razor blades.
He said: “It was surreal to be able to throw a few punches at him.
“He was a fantastic bloke, he just messed on all day to keep us entertained.”
