Carmen Ejogo Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

The daughter of a Nigerian businessman and a Scotch tour guide, exotically beautiful British actress Carmen Ejogo grew up in London and won her first part at age 11, but only broke through to international acclaim in 1997, as [[Performer~P51440~Eddie Murphy~eddiemurphy]]'s onscreen paramour in the comic actioner [[Feature~V137233~Metro~metro]]. Later, Ejogo disclosed the full extent of her dramatic range with a skilled portrayal of Sally Hemings -- [[Performer~P35395~Thomas Jefferson~thomasjefferson]]'s mistress -- (a part she inherited from [[Performer~P52472~Thandie Newton~thandienewton]] and others) in the acclaimed television miniseries [[Feature~V187070~Sally Hemings: An American Scandal~sallyhemings:anamericanscandal]] (2000). The crime comedy [[Feature~V244228~What's the Worst That Could Happen?~whatstheworstthatcouldhappen]] (2001), with [[Performer~P17602~Danny DeVito~dannydevito]] and [[Performer~P40942~Martin Lawrence~martinlawrence]], represented a low point, but Ejogo saved face via exemplary supporting work in such pictures as [[Feature~V318197~Lackawanna Blues~lackawannablues]] (2005) and [[Feature~V346872~The Brave One~thebraveone]] (2007). In the coming years, Ejogo would find additional success on the small screen, on series like Kidnapped and Chaos. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
