He also appeared as Lloyd Kramer in Holby City and Nathin in Damilola, Our Loved Boy.
Viewers may also recognise David from his role as Sanke Eyes in Snatch and Stan in Hetty Feathers.
His other credits include Casualty and Doctors on BBC One
Speaking to Express.co.uk and other press, David reflected on his character and his background. He said: “It’s set in Victorian times, and I know that we’re not being super strict with the time and how everything looks.
“‘I did think about it – Spike is a mixed-race character. Mixed race people at that time would have been subject to a lot of stuff.
‘It was very interesting to think about where his parents would have been, and how that would play out, and I think that’s what’s so interesting because you know the rest of the gang grew up in the workhouse, whereas Spike never grew up in the workhouse.
“I think there are many avenues to go down and if there is another season, maybe we’ll explore those avenues. I’m very very interested to explore that in season two.”
