I did a movie called ‘The Savages’ with Laura Linney and Phillip Seymour Hoffman, where I played a nurse, and it showed me in a different role from what I played on ‘The Wire.’ It showed my range as an actor.Gbenga Akinnagbe
I’m a very physical person. I’m very tactile. I wrestled in college, so a lot of my communication with the world comes through physicality – what I take in and what I put out there.Gbenga Akinnagbe
Growing up, I was in and out of trouble in group homes and other institutions, and when I was 14, I was locked up in a psychiatric hospital for a number of months for behavioral problems.Gbenga Akinnagbe
I like writing, and I enjoy it. It’s painful. You can’t get around the pain of writing. I’m still trying to balance on what I think is my creative habit. It varies, but I do know that I need to continue. It helps me with my acting, and the writing helps me be invested in a different way.Gbenga Akinnagbe
‘The Wire’ was a combination of great TV and great theater.Gbenga Akinnagbe
