David Oyelowo Opens Up About 'Nightingale': 'This Was A Role I Had To Play'

David Oyelowo is handsome in a blue suit while attending the premiere of his latest film Nightingale held at ArtBeam on Thursday (May 28) in New York City.

The 38-year-old actor was joined at the event by his wife Jessica and director Elliott Lester as they promoted the flick, which is available on HBO now!

“This was a role I had to play,” David told the LA Times. “Essentially I’m always looking for ways to scare and challenge myself. I look for things that take me outside my comfort zone, and all of that would be taking place in this piece.”

“I didn’t come out of character — I effectively didn’t shake him. I moved out — I didn’t want that around my wife and kids. I was solitary,” David continued. “I would take food from the set — I didn’t want to go into shops, didn’t want to talk to anyone. That enabled me to tell the truth. I don’t recognize anything of myself in it. I was so entirely invested in being that guy. This was really giving myself over to something.”

David Oyelowo Says Accusing Benedict Cumberbatch of Racism is 'Absolutely Ridiculous'

David Oyelowo looks super sharp while attending a press conference for his movie Selma held during the 2015 Berlinale International Film Festival at Grand Hyatt Hotel on Tuesday (February 10) in Berlin, Germany.

The 38-year-old actor was joined by his co-star Colman Domingo, as well as director Ava DuVernay, all of whom later hit the red carpet for the film’s premiere.

David recently responded to the backlash Benedict Cumberbatch received for using the term “colored” when talking about black actors and diversity.

“To accuse him of racism is absolutely ridiculous and nonsensical, and anyone who does should be ashamed of themselves,” David told The Big Issue. “He was talking about the under-representation of people within the UK film industry and the fact that actors like me are getting better opportunities in the US. He has no dog in that fight. He is one of the premier white actors, not just in the UK but the world. And he has done something truly beautiful in saying this isn’t right.”
