Interview with Scott Adkins – An Accident Man Special

It’s hard to believe it was in November 2016 that Kung Fu Kingdom first reported the news that “Accident Man” was in production with UK martial arts action star Scott Adkins headlining with an “Expendables-esque” line-up. Since then Scott, with his cast and crew worked tirelessly to bring his dream project, based on the British cult comic “Toxic” series, to the screen.

“Accident Man” was released on Blu-ray and DVD in the US on 6th February (and you can read our review) but UK fans had an extra treat as two months later on 7th April, the film was a given a big-screen premier at the Mockingbird Cinema in Birmingham, organised by the Fighting Spirit Film Festival.

Full interview

The sold out event was a buzzing martial arts fest whose guest list included award-winning film makers, actors and talented martial artists, along with the many fans who purchased tickets to aatend. And of course, the man of the hour himself, Scott Adkins, was there to realise a dream come true – his film being shown on the big screen to an audience in his home town. We sat down with Scott to talk about the film and the challenges he faced as not only as its main star but also the creative driving force as writer and co-producer.

Ramon Youseph

Ever since he first saw the great Bruce Lee in Enter The Dragon on the big screen whilst living in Iran, Ramon has been fascinated with martial arts, and at age 6 attended classes in Kan Zen Ryu Karate under Sensei Reza Pirasteh. When he moved to the UK, martial arts came calling in his early teens in the shape of the mysterious art of Ki Aikido which he studied for five years. Since then he has practiced Feng Shou Kung Fu, Lee Style Tai Chi, Taekwondo, Kickboxing before returning to Aikido, studying under Sensei Michael Narey. As well as Bruce Lee, Ramon is a big fan of martial arts actors Jackie Chan, Cynthia Rothrock, Jeff Wincott, Richard Norton and Tadashi Yamashita to name a few. Ramon is an aspiring writer and when he is not honing his craft he likes to go out running, hiking and is still trying to count to ten in Japanese.
