Tobie Famusipe

I am a first generation American-Nigerian. I speak multiple Nigerian dialects and multiple accents.

Born in Washington DC, I have lived equally in the US and Lagos Nigeria which has led to me having an interesting view and sense of humor about life.  I often feel like a man born of two different worlds because of the cultural differences. It’s a balancing act like no other, having to adapt to both cultures simultaneously which can be challenging, because although I have had the desire to entertain and act this profession is not something readily embraced in the Nigerian cultural because it’s not considered a professional line of work.  Nigerian parents command and I quote “READ YOUR BOOKS”, “GO TO COLLEGE” so that you can become a Doctor, Lawyer, or Engineer NOT Actor.

So I followed my parent’s instruction and migrated back to the United States to attend college at Seton Hall University where I majored in Criminal Justice and Political Science. Currently my day job is a Senior Business Systems Analyst. It is during my adult years I have been able resurrect my desire to be an entertainer and actor. I’ve always had a love for movies and with my family’s encouragement it ignited my creative juices which led to pursuing a career in the entertainment industry.  In 2011 I began taking acting and voice over training with The Actors Scene in Buford GA. My intuition regarding my acting ability became evident because in October 2014 I signed with an agent. Today I am proudly represented by TDH Talent Unlimited.

Some other interesting things about me:

My favorite past time is to spend time with my lovely wife and daughter watching our favorite movies.
