Sixteen years after 10 year old Damilola Taylor was fatally stabbed in South London, the tragic story of his killing and the devastating impact it had on his family was shown on BBC One on Monday 7th November 2016. Wunmi Mosaku played the role of Gloria Taylor, the loving and devoted mother of Damilola.
“It’s beautifully performed by Wunmi Mosaku as Gloria, quietly torn to pieces inside” – The Guardian – Sam Wollaston
“Sensitively made with the support of the Taylor family, this was above all a portrait of a family; the mealtimes, bedtimes, good times and bad times. Of course, it was deeply moving, yet Damilola, Our Loved Boy was also inspiring” – The Telegraph – Michael Hogan ****
