WRIGHT ON FATHERHOOD

Once speaking with Closer Weekly, the dad-of-two spoke highly of his kids while sharing how he and Ejogo work out their co-parenting style.

BEFORE HOLLYWOOD

It can be easily imagined that the actor was interested in sports before he got bitten by the acting bug. As a sixth-grader, Wright, a student of all-boys school St. Alban, joined the Lacrosse team and became an expert goalkeeper by the time he got to the eighth grade.

While studying at Amherst College, he joined the varsity Lacrosse team. However, with time, Wright, a political science student, took a serious interest in acting.

FACTS ABOUT WRIGHT

A Washington D.C native, Wright studied Political Science at Amherst College and took on an acting career after bagging an acting scholarship to New York University.

However, Wright dropped out of NYU after a few months to launch a full-time acting career. It didn't take long for him to bag a Tony Award for his role in "Angels in America."

He gained wider acclaim from his first major role in 1996's "Basquiat." His other acting credits include "No Time to Die," "The Hunger Games," and "Empire," among others.
