Who is Erin’s father Top Boy?

Erin’s father in Top Boy is Dris Wright.

Dris, played by Shone Romulus, was a key character in Summerhouse during the first two seasons of Channel 4’s Top Boy and the first chapter of the Netflix reboot.

He was a close ally of Dushane and Sully and served as their ruthless enforcer.

Dris took over as head of Summerhouse alongside new recruit Jaq when Top Boy moved to Netflix, before becoming Dushane’s deputy again upon his return from Jamaica.

What happened to Dris?

Dris was killed by Sully in the final episode of the first season of Top Boy on Netflix.

Earlier in the season, Dris had suffered a stroke, which left him partially disabled and prone to seizures.

Since this made him a liability to the company, Dushane had no choice but to demote him.

Dris was then visited by Jermaine, a member of Jamie’s rival gang London Fields, who offered him money to give Erin a better life in exchange for revealing Sully and Dushane’s whereabouts so they could carry out an attack on them. which Dris agreed.

Dushane and Sully survived the attack and quickly realized that Dris had betrayed them as he was the only one who knew their whereabouts.

After escaping Jamie’s gang, Sully came to Dris’ apartment while he and Erin were watching TV. He took Dris to the roof of a nearby apartment building and shot him.

Although Dris had been a key figure in the Summerhouse gang, Sully was visibly upset about what he had to do and spent much of the second season feeling guilty about killing Dris.
