AN IMPRESSIVE Lambretta collection led to one Seaford resident starring in the trailer for Brighton Rock.

Scooter fan Christian Simpson responded to an advert asking for riders to take part in the remake of the classic film.

Because the 41-year-old’s 1964 Lambretta was amongst the best put forward he was able to ride up near the front alongside Sam Riley, the film’s lead actor.

Filming took place in Eastbourne during 2009 and Christian, of Surrey Road, appears in several scenes.

Christian – who runs Simpson Marine in Newhaven – also got the chance to meet actor Phil Davies, who famously starred in Quadrophenia.

Christian said, “It was fantastic, absolutely amazing.”

Brighton Rock opens on February 4.
