HOT CORN TV: Joe Cole on the brutal prison drama A Prayer Before Dawn

The English performer recounts what was a truly unforgettable acting experience

It’s unlikely any actor will have to go through quite what Joe Cole experienced when shooting the brutal prison drama A Prayer Before Dawn. The film, which played at Cannes, tells the true story of British boxer Billy Moore, who wound up in a notorious Thai prison. We spoke to Cole about his remarkable time he spent on set, and how immersive an experience it was for him, unlike anything else he’s likely to do again.

A Prayer Before Dawn is released on July 20th.
