REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Paapa Essiedu Biography

Paapa Essiedu is a British actor. He is known for his work in theatre, film and television, including the 2020 television series "I May Destroy You," which earned him a Primetime Emmy Award nomination. He won the 2016 Ian Charleson Award for his title role in "Hamlet" and Edmund in "King Lear," both at the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Essiedu grew up in East London with his mother, who was a fashion and design teacher. His family comes from Ghana, where he has a half-brother and half-sister. He won a scholarship to Forest School, Walthamstow, and despite being active in sports teams and theatrical productions, his ambition as he grew older was to become a doctor. Essiedu became more involved with Shakespeare when he was accepted into the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where he met and worked with Michaela Coel. He takes inspiration from his favorite actors: Mark Rylance, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Simon Russell Beale, David Thewlis, and Gary Oldman.
