Nigerian British Actor, David Oyelowo came to international stardom two years ago courtesy of his role in Ava Duvernay directed, ‘Selma’.
However, since his role in Selma, the Actor has proceeded to act in more critically acclaimed movies.
An example is his role in the Disney produced, ‘Queen of Katwe’, featuring Academy award winner, Lupita Nyong’o.
Well, if it seems to you like Oyelowo is performing magic, the Star has revealed how he comes to select those projects that eventually give him critical acclaim.
According to him, he has a ‘3 P’ plan. And 3 p means… wait for it…
The People involved, the Project and the Part.
…if the project is one that speaks to me, if it’s one that is meaningful or entertaining or one that I think has something to say that gets my attention. But really, it’s the people involved. I really want to keep on learning as an Actor and you do that by surrounding yourself with people who are better than you.
