Nina Gold, the casting executive for ‘Game of Thrones’ has thrown Nigerian conceived UK entertainer, Shobowale Bamgbose for a Warner Bros generation.
The popular casting director, who is known for her work on the HBO series, ‘Rome,’ and ‘Game of Thrones,’ has given a Nigerian born actor a chance at the big screen.
The actor was confirmed for a supporting role in an upcoming cinematic release by the Warner Bros studio. Sobowale Bamgbose’s talent company, ARA Talent Group announced the new feat.
The talent company wrote, “Congratulations to our client, Sobowale Bamgbose, who has been confirmed for a fantastic role in a new Warner Bros cinematic release cast by the wonderful team of Nina Gold Casting! We are very proud of Sobowale who has come so far!!! Well Done.”
The Nigerian actor had featured in ‘Casino Royale,’ ‘Dog City’ and a number of theatre plays, as well as an Access Bank advert.
Gold’s decision to cast Bamgbose for the Warner Bros upcoming cinematic release is not new as she was responsible for John Boyega’s inclusion into ‘Star Wars.’
In an article by UK Guardian, Gold was described as partly responsible for the impression that British actors have colonised Hollywood by sneaking unknown young UK actors like John Boyega and Daisy Ridley, into ‘Star Wars’.
