David Oyelowo On Meeting The Family Of The King Of Botswana For “United Kingdom” [EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]


Oscar-nominated and award winning actor David Oyelowo chatted with Erica Campbell and GRIFF about his new film, “United Kingdom.” He struggles to pick a favorite role out of the many he has played, from Martin Luther King Jr in “Selma,” to his latest; the King Of Botswana in “United Kingdom.” The film tells the story of the King’s relationship with a British white woman, which was very controversial at that time, in the 1940s.
