Hello Crew! My name is Chinedu Unaka.
I'm a Nigerian American actor, comedian and writer born currently living in Los Angeles. I've been acting and performing stand up comedy for ten years now and love practicing the craft. If there's anyway I can help just let me know. I've studied at many acting studios in Los Angeles and at every level of UCB.
When supporting I enjoy looking at the scene in multiple ways: how to figure out what your character wants, the other characters purpose, the purpose of the scene in moving the story forward and potential physical aspects that can make the words come to life.
Love drama and comedy.
