Battling zombies and a killer on the loose is all in a day’s work for The Wrestling Agency’s Justin Sysum.

Justin has recently appeared in the new thriller ‘Avengement’ where his character fights top action movie star and martial artist Scott Adkins - who plays the lead role as a cold-hearted killer on a quest for revenge.

If that wasn’t enough of a bruising assignment for Justin, he also stars in a new show called ‘Skin Cleaners’ about a cleaning company set in a zombie-infested world!

Versatile Justin was delighted to be invited to the premiere of ‘Avengement’ at Stratford East Picturehouse in London last week to celebrate its upcoming July 1 UK release on Blu-Ray and digital download.

“It’s had excellent reviews by critics,” said the WOS Wrestling Champion.

“I’m part of the stunt team and I got to fight Scott Adkins, who is the best in the world at screen fighting.”

Avengement also stars Craig Fairbrass (EastEnders) and Nick Moran (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels).

Meanwhile Skin Cleaners is an independent project headed by former wrestler Chris Welch who wrote and directed the pilot episode.

“I came on board as the producer and also play Coops, the weapon obsessed Neanderthal in a post zombie apocalypse world,” said Justin.

“Chris has six episodes ready to go and we will be premiering the pilot in the coming months to try and get funding to make the rest of the series.”
