Kaluuya grew up on a council estate – the rough equivalent to “the projects” in the United States – the son of Ugandan immigrants to Britain. He took advantage of every possible free arts program, and, at 18, ended up bot a writer and an actor for the program Skins. And, years later, came Get Out. “By the time he won best ‘newcomer’ at the Baftas for Get Out in 2018, Kaluuya had been a professional actor for 10 years. ‘I am a product of UK arts funding,’ he told the audience, before dedicating that award to his mum and old teachers.” – The Observer (UK)
