Boxing Day is the UK’s first ever Christmas-set romantic comedy led by an all-Black cast. In the film, Aml plays Melvin, who travels back home to London after living in the US with his fiancée, Lisa (How To Get Away With Murder's Aja Naomi King). Melvin then comes across his ex, the famous pop star Georgia played by Leigh-Anne: cue classic romcom chaos.

“It was really strange being on that stage in jazz café scene. I haven't sung on my own for like 10 years. So, that was like petrifying.
“But I think it's also nice because I think people finally get to really hear me sing. And I don't think a lot of people have really heard me sing like that. Especially when you're in a group.”
