Abraham Attah has literally seen it all, less than a year after a Netflix crew rolling through the streets of Accra picked him to star in a movie alongside Idris Elba.
He has since gone on to become an internationally acclaimed child star, picked up numerous awards across continents- and even had the chance to present at the 88th edition of the Academy Awards.
So far in his young career, there are two people who have given him the most help- co-star Idris Elba and movie director Cary Fukunaga.
On Tuesday, forty eight hours after appearing at the Oscars, the fifteen year old took to social media to thank the latter for the instrumental role he played in getting him to where he is. He wrote that without the actions of Fukunaga, to pick him to star as Agu in the movie, he wouldn’t have achieved what he has in so short a time.
“You changed my life when you picked me to play Agu.” He wrote.
The Ghanaian played the fun loving turned child soldier Agu in the critically acclaimed movie; starring alongside the veteran Elba, who played Commandant.
