We can’t thank the universe enough for creating a man as beautiful as Boris Kodjoe. The self proclaimed “regular guy” covers the newest issue of Upscale and inside, he dishes on the strides he’s made as the only German actor to play convincing African American roles.
“If I started worrying about how people perceive me, I would be mad about people not realizing that I couldn’t even speak English when I first came here. People always give so much props to English actors that do an American accent convincingly. I had to learn how to walk and talk and move around so I could be accepted as somebody who plays African-American roles.”
