The premiere episode of BMF (September 26) kicked off with a literal bang, with the cliffhanger shooting of Terry 'Southwest T' Flenory by an unknown assailant.

All fingers point to the likeliest of characters, Lamar, played by Eric Kofi Abrefa, who has had it in for Demetrius 'Big Meech' Flenory and Terry 'Southwest T' Flenory since they took over the streets of Detroit with their crew 50 Boyz.

Digital Spy exclusively sat down with Eric Kofi Abrefa, who chillingly revealed there is "no limit" to how far Lamar will take it.

"There is no limit (laughs), I don't think there is. He's really calculative. And when it comes to getting what he needs to get, he's gonna get it by any means necessary. And that's fun," he said.

"It's more so the writers, the writers write it and I look here and I'm like, 'really, we're doing this' (laughs). But it's fun. Nah, nah, it's fun, it's really been great playing him."

Discussing the possibility of Lamar shooting Terry, Abrefa teased: "Ahh I don't know, I can't, I don't know (laughs)."

The One actor continues: "I mean, you know, it's like, imagine if you're playing a murder mystery game, and everybody knows this one guy for being on smoke all the time, obviously you're gonna think it's him, innit?

"So, I can understand all the fingers being pointed at Lamar, but to be honest, I actually I can't reveal anything but I can't remember, like I don't (laughs)."

While Lamar and the Flenory brothers battle it out on screen, things are much more amicable off screen.

Describing what it was like working with Lil' Meech, Da'Vinchi and the rest of the cast and crew, Abrefa said: "Lil' Meech is like, that's like my brother man, I love that guy. He was dope. Same as Da'Vinchi, they're just very, everybody was like, it was like a family vibe to be honest.

"I was really, really impressed with Meech since this was like his first job. And he was like fully, fully committed to it from day one, like professionalism was on a hundred. Because it meant a lot to him, telling a story about his dad and his uncle.

"Da'Vinchi [is] more experienced. [He's] done like loads of TV, he's on Broadway at the moment. So, he was great, just working with, he kind of knew the ropes already," the Blue Story actor added.

"And everybody else, I mean Kash [Doll] was dope working with Ajiona [Alexus], all of them like, Myles Bullock was like, he plays Slick, he was my dude kind of like off and on camera. Everyone man, I can name them all, I'll just be reeling off loads of names."

BMF airs on Starz in the US and streams on Starzplay, available through Amazon Prime Video, in the UK.
