Chiwetel Ejiofor: '12 Years a Slave' BFI Film Festival Photo Call

Chiwetel Ejiofor suits up for a photo call for his film 12 Years A Slave during the 2013 BFI London Film Festival held at the Mayfair Hotel on Friday (October 18) in London, England.

The 36-year-old actor was joined at the event by the film’s director Steve McQueen.

Earlier in the week, Chiwetel attended the Variety screening of the film held at the ArcLight Hollywood alongside Steve, and his co-stars Lupita Nyong’o and Alfre Woodard.

“You wait all your life for great scripts, you are reading everything, hassling people, your agent, you are trying to get a great part,” Chiwetel told Reuters. “Then this script comes through the door, and you read it and it is a great script and a great part and you think ‘Can I do this? Am I ready to do this? Is it for me?’”

FYI: Lupita is wearing Prada.

I cannot wait to see this film. Amazing acting, amazing directing. An ugly part of America’s history but it is the truth and should never be hidden or spun. Thank you for this film and great performances. Chiwetel Ejiofor gave his heart and soul for this movie, you can tell from just watching the trailers and interviews….he deserves many awards and recognition.

I have loved all of Lupita’s outfits but this one I don’t like. She really looks amazing in bright colors. Regardless I understand her performance in 12 years as a slave is AMAZING. Can’t wait to see it.
