    Default Ghanaian Actors In Hollywood





    I was watching an Episode of Spartacus Blood and Sand on HBO and noticed the name Peter Mensah as the credits rolled up after the show. Never knew the brother was Ghanaian until i saw his name.

    He's been in movies like La femme Nikita,300 and a host of others.

    Do you know of any actors in Hollywood of Ghanaian lineage ? Let's hear them.

    Meet 10-year-old Kwesi Boakye, Hollywood’s latest sensation. Already a veteran actor with an ever-growing resume and roles in several features including Tyler Perry’s “I Can Do Bad All By Myself” staring Academy Award nominee Taraji Henson, he began his career in television commercials at just 10-months-old staring in a video for pre-school kids called “Tots on Tape”. A modeling gig in the worldwide Baby Gap campaign followed and it wasn’t long before Kwesi snagged his first casting role on the medical drama “Strong Medicine”.

    Since then, he has appeared in a string of prominent television shows such as “Boston Legal”, “South Park”, “Daybreak” with Taye Diggs and the Daytime Soap Opera “Days of Our Lives”. He can also be seen as a series regular on the new Cartoon Network animated series “Gumball” voicing the character role of Darwin. He also voiced Andrew on the animated series “Special Agent Oso” although his most notable voice-over role was in the Oscar winning flick, “Happy Feet”.
