African British Actor

Chucky Venice

Chucky Venn was Born and raised in West London, to Nigerian parents, he grew up in a large household; the eldest of five siblings he has two sets of twin sisters. Chucky's friends and Family always felt he was destined to be in the spotlight; growing up he won a number of modelling competitions but decided on a career in acting quite accidentally; filming with friends in the park with a new toy, a video camera, he realised how much he enjoyed acting. He dedicated the following three years to study; honing his skills with the hope of carving out a career in the acting businness. The support of his family has given him an incredible drive and ambition which has been the credit for all the roles he has landed so far. Years of networking, religiously reading The Stage newspaper & PCR he has virtually done it all, from extra work, modelling, music videos, community theatre and low budget independent movies. His big break came when he auditioned for the role of Curtis Alexander on Sky Ones football soap Dream Team. What originally started out as a two episode contract developed into a three year role filming 98 episodes. In-between projects he also landed a featured role in BBC 1s Holby City as well as ITV's The Bill. After swapping Sky Ones No.1 soap for primetime ITVs Footballers Wives this was 10 years in the making. Now with feature's in 2007's Blockbuster 'Bourne Ultimatum', this year's eagerly anticipated 'Batman The Dark Knight', plus 'The Code' with Morgan Freeman & Antonio Banderess and currently filiming 'Sharpe's Peril' with Sean Bean in India as well as several other projects this year, Chucky Venn's career continues to grow from strength to strength.
