Jazz Lintott as Frankie Lucas

Known for The Real Hustle (2012), Going for Gold (2019), I am Pilate (2020), Emmerdale (2022) and 5lb of Pressure (2023). Jazz trained at the National Youth Theatre, Italia Conti, Royal Central School of Speech & Drama and is represented by Simon and Howe Associates.

Going For Gold charts the story of Frankie Lucas, a Middleweight boxer and Gold Medal winner. Set in London in the 1970s, we follow Frankie as he tries to navigate the politics of boxing, his dreams and ambitions and the needs of his family. We meet the people that steer Frankie’s path and those that live in his heart. And we learn when everything around him fails, who and what he hangs onto. Frankie’s story explores who we are and what we are willing to fight for. As it asks us to consider the meaning of success, legacy, belonging and home and what we leave behind.
