Kwesi Boakye

     Kwesi Boakye is one of tinsel town’s most talked about young actors. He holds his own next to veteran actor Michael Ealy ("Think like a Man") in the lead role of the compelling drama“Unconditional”. Boakye's recent big screen credits include playing the lovable sick baby brother“Manny”, in Tyler Perry's #1 box office hit "I Can Do Bad All By Myself". He has guest starred in numerous major TV shows including playing "P-Diddy's" son on the hit TV series "Hawaii Five-O" to critical acclaim.  Boakye is a series regular cast on TNT'S “Men of a Certain Age” and is the voice of “Darwin”, the lead character in the Cartoon Network’s new award winning hit animated series
"The Amazing World Of Gumball"

      "UNCONDITIONAL" is now playing in theaters nationwide.       

      When asked to describe his role in the film, Boakye explains, "Well my character “Macon”  basically hustles and makes deals to survive, just like most of the young boys who are fatherless or parentless in the under resourced community where he lives. On the outside “Macon” wants to be perceived as cool and tough by his peers but deep inside he is crying out for love. ”Papa” Joe’s (Michael Ealy) tireless love and caring for “Macon” , created an unbreakable bond, between the man he sees as the only father he will ever have."

      Being a film making veteran at such a young age, what experiences did Boakye take away from this project? He lights up, "The experience was great! Everyone on set was so helpful and nice. I had never been to Nashville so that was really cool. I loved the set at the farmhouse, just so much land, horses,cows and waterfalls. I had so much fun, I almost forgot I was filming, it just felt like a vacation really with a new family."
