David Shared How He Got Into Acting

David was born in the United Kingdom. He went to Nigeria, lived there for seven years, and then returned to London

He said he got into acting because he liked a girl. 

He shared he was living in North London and used to go to church, and he was obsessed with Pastor's daughter. 

He said the girl used to work in the overhead projector, and he used to sit at the back of the church and listen to every church for about a year. 

One day, the girl approached him and invited him to the theatre. 

He thought it was a date, so he plucked a rose for her from his mother's garden. 

When he walked towards her with a rose holding his hand, he knew from her expression that she didn’t see things the way he did. 

He dropped the rose, and they went to see the play. The girl took him backstage, where there was a youth theatre. 

He went to a room where young boys were warming up. He loved that, and that's how he got into acting.

He said, however, it was upsetting for his wife.
