Hey folks once again my my ‘creatively restless’ mind is at it again. For some time now perhaps by some coincidence i have stumbled upon stories of some Nigerian actors who have been making waves in Hollywood.

  • Chiwetel Ejiofor actor,( Inside Man, Dirty Pretty Things)
  • Sophie Okonedo, actor, (The jackal, Dirty Pretty Things).
  • Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, actor, (Lost, The Bourne Identity, GI Joe).
these three name amongst the growing number of Nigerians who have found and are still making their way to the limelight called hollywood. on this thread i will attempt to bring you a profile of them, their current projects and their lives.
