The most important role and character is Ugwu because through his eyes the story unfolds. John Boyega is set to play this role and here is his resume IMDb Resume for John Boyega

I can't think of any of the young Nollywood Actors who fit play that role. Not that one does not exist, just that we hardly see them and they are not constantly acting to remember their faces or names. Beautiful Soul might be of help here. Nne, bia ooo. I would love to see the casting tape for this character.

Come to think of it we don't really need a 13yr old to play a 13 yr old. We should be able to find older actors who can carry of such role. Let the search begin

An older actor can play a 13 year old? I think its best to get someone not older than 18 at least. Am trying to think of young Nollywood actors, and all i think of is Oc Ukeje and can he play a 13 year old? Well....

We can even push the envelope to 20 or 30 depending. OC can definitely pull it off. Just watched him on 2 Brides and a Baby and he does have that typical teenage boyish body. He speaks the language fluently and the phonetics must be in place and heard since the character is coming from a village.

I wonder if he went for the role

Thanks MW. We are off to a good start

The comments are not crazy; it's a bit of fun. If I were casting I would use a lot of new unknown faces... totally shake & spice things up!
