Adewole Akinnuoye-Agbaje 

Akinnuoye-Agbaje had a torrid childhood. Born in London to Nigerian parents of Yoruba descent, Akinnuoye- Agbaje faced an identity crisis after his parents gave him up to a white working-class family in Tilbury, Essex. Clearly not excited about living with foster parents, he came back to Nigeria to find his roots and was later sent back by his parents due to his inability to speak the Yoruba language.

He went back to London and began modelling, acting and directing. As an actor, he has starred in more than a dozen movies, including Suicide Squad, Thor: The Dark World, Pompeii, and Oz.
