Book Amal Fashnau
Amal Fashanu was born on the 21st of October 1988 in Great Portland Hospital, London. The offspring of former model Marisol Acuna from Spain and famous England, Crystal Palace, Aston Villa, Wimbledon and Norwich football star John Fashanu, Amal was destined for the limelight.
Schooled originally in London and trilingual in Spanish, English and French, she attended classes in dance, singing and drama, before moving to Madrid, Spain where she went on to study up to A level at the (British) Runnymede College.
Not forgetting her artistic heritage, Amal pursued her interests in singing and piano with a private tutor and also made some recordings for a BBC English linguistic programme.
Returning to England in 2006, Amal attended Brunel University in London to take an honours degree course in Communications and Media.
Already accustomed to the bright lights of media scrutiny via her famous parents, Amal was nevertheless encouraged to complete her education before venturing into a public career in modelling and music in her own right. With her education successfully completed, 1m 80 (5ft 11inches) tall and catwalk gorgeous, Amal is now free to pursue her dreams of a career in the entertainment industry as a singer and song writer. Already noted for her appearance on Channel 4’s “Come Dine With Me”, Amal has also been actively supporting ‘The Justin Campaign.’
A charity with the slogan, “Footballers Against Homophobia” (The Justin Campaign) founded in honour of her equally famous footballing star uncle, Justin Fashanu who was the first 1 million pound black footballer. Justin Fashanu played for Norwich, West Ham, Nottingham Forest and Manchester City before his traffic death in the May of 1998. Amal has begun to excite media interest as a result of her involvement with the charity along with various TV appearances. Film and photo opportunities have already come her way and will only increase with the launch of her career.
Amal is listed in Red Pages Hot 100 for 2012; Amal’s new BBC3 documentary, The Batman Shootings aired on BBC3 in August 2012 to fantastic ratings.
Her first documentary for BBC3 was Britain’s Gay Footballers, which went out in January 2012, and was watched by over 1.3m – a huge hit for the channel.
