Bill Milner and Wesley Nelson star in the new biopic of Ian Dury currently in post-production and scheduled for release next year. Wesley is pictured here with Hamish Thompson, himself disabled by polio, who played the part of a disabled boy in a 1950's care home with the young Ian.
13 year old Wesley (represented by the Jackie Palmer Agency) plays the young Ian, who despite being stricken with Polio at an early age defied expectations by becoming one of the founders of the punk-rock scene in Britain in the 1970s.
Accomplished actor 14 year old Bill Milner (Curtis Brown), one of Screenterrier's Faces to Watch, appears as Ian's son Baxter.
