Jasmine Jobson Beats ‘The Crown’ Pair To Win Best Supporting Actress For ‘Top Boy’ — BAFTA TV Awards

Jasmine Jobson has won the BAFTA TV Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Netflix drama Top Boy.

She beat off competition from the likes of Elizabeth Debicki and Lesley Manville for their roles in The Crown.

The award was the first dished out at this year’s event and continues the rise of Jobson, whose role as Jaq in the gritty Top Boy has been a breakout for the British star.

Top Boy follows the lives of a pair of east London drug kingpins played by Ashley Walters and Kane Robinson, the latter of whom is up for Best Actor tonight. Jobson plays a high-ranking capo in their gang. The series began life on Channel 4 before it was revived on Netflix with the help of celebrity fan Drake.

Jobson has starred in shows such as ITV’s psychological drama Platform 7 and will be seen in Bird, the Andrea Arnold film starring Barry Keoghan — who had a role in the final season of Top Boy.

Last year’s winner was Anne-Marie Duff for her role in Apple TV+ comedy-drama Bad Sisters.

The awards are taking place today (May 12) in London at the Royal Festival Hall. Romesh Ranganathan and Rob Beckett are once again hosting, with scores of the UK’s biggest stars in attendance.
