Actor and director Zawe Ashton brings us a unique look at life, work and the absurdities of today's world. Zawe Ashton has been acting since she was six. She has played many different roles, from 'cute little girl' to 'assassin with attitude', Oscar Wilde's Salome to St Trinian's schoolgirl by way of Fresh Meat's Vod.
