"I think I enjoy working obviously as a lead, but also you know I feel I’m also a character actor as well, so I enjoy approaching various projects in all sort of capacities. Any film I have been able to do I feel very fortunate to have been a part." Chiwetel Ejiofo

GET TO KNOW ME MEME: [2/10] current celebrity crushes  → Chiwetel Ejiofor

"Nelson Mandela says that if a man stands on another man’s neck, two men suffer. And that was really true and I could understand that in a really visceral way, it is psychologically devastating to everybody. Hatred was not useful to Solomon Northrup, you know? Love was useful. And that is, I think, the crucial element of his journey."

At no point during filming, in the sweltering heat of New Orleans, did any of us ever foresee the journey this film would take us all on. Steve McQueen created an entire family to tell one man’s tale and I am delighted that so many of this family have also been recognized today. I am hugely grateful to the Academy for this great honour, and, of course, to Solomon Northup for sharing his story through his breathtaking book. — - Chiwetel Ejiofor, best actor nominee, “12 Years a Slave”
