Biography

Oxford, England, UK
David Oyetokunbo Oyelowo (pronounced "oh-yeh-lo-wo"), a classically trained stage actor, has quickly become one of Hollywood's most sought-after talents. He was born in Oxford, England, to Nigerian parents; his father, Stephen, worked for an airline company and his mother for the railway. Oyelowo graduated from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), and received the "Scholarship for Excellence" from Nicholas Hytner in 1998.

David received numerous accolades for the recent independent film, Middle of Nowhere, which screened to rave reviews at last year's Sundance and Toronto Film Festivals. Read more...
