Chiwetel Ejiofor

Chiwetel Ejiofor is one dude I hold in high esteem...he's been described as Britain's first black movie star..and he's Nigerian. Both his parents are Nigerians. His father was a doctor..I use was 'cos he died when chiwetel was just 11. They came to Nigeria to visit Chewy's grandparents and got involved in a car accident. His dad died..Chewy survived. The scar on his face was as a result of the accident. But he's still hot, isnt he people?

He started acting at age 20 after featuring in legendary movie producer Steven Spielberg's AMISTAD. How many of you have seen the movie? He started first in school plays and the national youth theatre in london b4 venturing into movies..he's doing so great. For a black African to succeed in a tough industry like the movie industry in hollywood is outstanding. he deserves our praise. and I heard he's just 30 yrs old..he's appeared in movies like...
DIRTY PRETTY THINGS 2000 with Audrey Tatou, remember her in the Da vinci Code with Tom Hanks?
he was also in LOVE, ACTUALLY 2003 with Clive Owen and Keira Knightley
FOUR BROTHERS in 2005 with Mark Wahlberg, tyrese and Big Boi from Outcast
RED DUST with Hilary swank
INSIDE MAN 2006 with Denzel Washington
KINKY BOOTS where he played a drag queen...very versatile I must say
I love young people going after their dreams and not letting anything get in their way or thinking its not possible to actualize their dreams
here are some of his movie pix..cute guy..huh ladies..what do u think about chewy?

Wow Linda, it took 10 months to get a comment on this post? And here I am, 3 months into blogging, getting all worked up because people view my blog but they rarely comment.

You have paid your dues and you deserve every good fortune that comes your way.

God bless your hustle!
