I turned down a lot of easier opportunities to go for the things that I really and ultimately wanted to do. And what’s nice is that it’s starting to work. I’ve been an actor for coming up on 14 years now and the level of activity that’s taking place now is a culmination of a slow cooker approach to as opposed to a microwave.” – David Oyelowo

Most accurately, the classically trained stage actor is best known for his roles in acting projects such as Middle of Nowhere, Rise of The Planets of the Apes, Lincon, The Butler, Spooks, and Wars Rebels.

Growing up in a country where acting was constantly evolving and covering zillions of different genera, young-teen David knew a thing or two about acting. However, the young boy had never thought about making acting his major life-long purpose until he visited a youth theatre as per an invitation from his young age attraction-the girl whom he used to hopelessly crave back then.

Later, he takes the course of theatre studies for A level at City and Islington College, where most of the teachers would suggest he pursue acting as a career. After that, he joins an art foundation course for a year, and then he enjoys a lucrative three years scholarship at the London Academy of Music and Art. Upon completing the academy study in 1998, he finally decides that he should now be getting practical experience to see his dreams turn into reality.

Now, fast-forwarding to 2014, he is known as an all-out talented actor who can act technically hard to fun roles in theatres, movies, or television shows. Moreover, the 38-year-old talented actor has successfully excelled in his theatre, movie, and television career, acting consistently for more than a decade long time from the late 1990s to now.

Now moving on to his personal life, he is married to his wife whom we know as actress Jessica Oyelowo. The couple has four children, and they are a happy family residing in Los Angeles. Moreover, in an interview, he has said that he is a conscious parent, and therefore wouldn’t work on projects or roles that are morally damaging or give the wrong message to society.

One of the things I have an allergic reaction to playing, especially as a black actor, is the mandatory kind of best friend/cop/detective type. You will never see me in that movie.” – David Oyelowo
