Nonso Anozie has been quietly moving under the radar but with his recent role in the summer blockbuster, Conan the Barbarian, this 32 year-old thespian and graduate of Central School of Speech and Drama in London is on his way to being recognized and respected in the Hollywood community. At 6ft 6inches, it’s not surprising that he was eagerly cast in the role of Xaro Xhoan Daxos in the 2nd season of HBO’s hit Game of Thrones. So far his roster of films are quite impressive, Atonement, RockNRolla and The Grey, an upcoming thriller also starring Liam Neeson. Not bad for a British actor of Nigerian decent who clearly doesn’t embody the leading man qualities but still manages to catch the attention of all the sheriffs that run the town where dreams are made. There are also rumblings that British director Mike Leigh of Secret and Lies fame may consider him for a role in his new film.

The sky is the limit for Nonso Anozie. And we can’t wait to see him soar!
