The British Actor Is Currently In a Relationship With an Unnamed Woman
Akinnuoye-Agbaje has talked about wanting children during interviews, and how that desire has influenced the kinds of film roles he takes. He told The Source that his future children were the main reason he took a part in the 2014 remake of Annie. “I grew up like you, watching those musicals whether it’s Wizard of Oz, Oliver Twist, or Annie and that’s one of the reasons I got into the movie,” he said. “Because I was so inspired by those fantastical worlds so to be able to be part of one and have my future kids watch their father be a bit of a clown was kind of an endearing cause.”
The actor has spoken at length about wanting to raise his children in a safe environment, given the struggles he faced in his youth. “If I’m honest, it was very tough. My father was a lorry driver, very rarely at home,” he told the Guardian. “The house was run by my mother, and because there were 10 or so kids, there was no time for individual attention. It was about survival. It was about where the next meal was coming from. We had to go out and nick things to get it. So there wasn’t any love in the sense of hugs or anything like that: there was just no room for it.”
