"I look for different characters 'cause I always like to keep people guessing, and I also don't like to get typecast."

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (born 22 August 1967 in London, England) is an English actor and former model of Yoruba Nigerian descent.

With a deep voice and a large, imposing frame, he's often cast as a Scary Black Man, though he has branched out into other roles. His ability to speak other languages and his talent for accents mean he's often cast as a Nigerian, the nationality of his parents.

In 2018 he made his writing and directing debut with Farming, based on his own childhood raised by a white working class family in England.
