Full name is pronounced like a-de-wall-e a-key-new-ye ag-ba-he.
Appears in both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Cinematic Universe with roles in Thor: The Dark World and Suicide Squad.
The woolly hat he wore as Simon Adebisi in ''Oz (1997-2003)'' was his idea and based on hats he'd seen gang members wear growing up in London.
The name of his character, "Atticus" in the action adventure film Pompeii is similar to a role he played in the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea TV film, the name of whom was "Cabe Attucks".
Had a successful career as a model in Milan and Paris, before pursuing acting.
He is a Buddhist and admitted that he had to chant more than usual while playing the brutal character of "Majestic" in Get Rich or Die Tryin' (2005).
He is fluent in several languages including Italian, Yoruba, Swahili, and (of course) English. He can "get along" in a few other languages, including French.
The son of immigrants from Nigeria, he has played almost entirely African characters despite having been born and raised in England. He usually employs a deep, Nigerian timber while acting, while off-screen he has a very British, somewhat Cockney accent.
He went from playing Ernie Hudson's good friend, the guide "Kahega" to Hudson's "Capt. Munro" in Congo (1995), to playing his enemy, the sociopath "Adebisi" to Hudson's hard-headed "Warden Glynn" in Oz (1997).
Is perhaps best known for his role as the cunning, fierce super-criminal Adebisi on Oz (1997). Another role he is very much associated with is the enigmatic 'Mr. Eko' from Lost (2004), even though he played that role in only 28 of the series' 117 episodes.
Has a masters in Law from the University of London, but took a different career path when bitten by the acting bug.
Due to his tall frame, powerful-looking physique and deep voice, he often plays sinister, imposing characters of criminal or military backgrounds
The only way I know how to deliver is to focus; some people can turn it on or off - I'd rather stay in character. There was no socializing. I would start two hours before I went to the set and I wouldn't say any other words other than the ones that I needed to say, that's just the way I work and I think that intensity comes across in my characters. -on his "method acting" style, which has sometimes allegedly caused resentment on sets
When a star character on a hit show chooses to leave there's always speculation as to whether or not they've done this or that or not gotten along with this or that person. Straight up: it was probably one of the best relationships I've ever had in terms of developing a character, and I think the character will be a testament to that. -on working on Lost (2004)
They gave me a stick and said, 'Knock those three guys out.' There's no better way to make an entrance. - when asked if he was made to feel like the "new kid on the block" when joining Lost
I kind of feel for the people on the show who are just coming into the business and this is their first gig. They've got a big letdown coming." - on his younger cast mates on "Lost
The only way you can influence your fate is to put your soul into your performance and hope it registers with the audience.
I've never been really great at trusting anybody, just because of the way I grew up. I was always led to believe you should take care of yourself, trust in your abilities and you're the author of your own destiny. Coming to this show is the opposite." - talking about "Lost
