Veteran actor, Chiwetalu Agu is known for his roles as a wicked and evil man in most films. Due to his convincing interpretation of such cruel roles, some fans believe this might not be far from his actual character in real life.

In a recent interview, the ace actor said that to tell the story well, it was part of his job to convince and convey his message through a particular character. He added that he is actually a very nice and jovial person in his real life.

He stressed that as a professional actor, it would be unprofessional to suffer the emotions of his audience who are all watching to be entertained.


I’m known in movies as a wicked man, but then in the real day to day life, I am not the wicked character you see on TV. Also, it shouldn’t be about being wicked for me. In movies, I need to lighten up the mood of movie buffs by being comical and entertaining to the audience at some point.

As it stands now, I’m more like a father, a teacher and in fact, a professor in acting. If you can observe, when scripts come from my children, I try to add good lines to them, so they can be entertaining and informing,” he said.
