Barkhad Abdi's quotes
- I was lucky enough to have parents that took me out from country to country and go to school and learn how to be a better person.
- I don't see myself only as a Somali character. I think of myself as an actor, and if the job fits me and I like the story, I will go for it.
- I would DJ pool parties in Minneapolis, but I never swam there!
- I just want to keep acting and better my craft and see how far it goes.
- I left Somalia when I was seven years old, but I witnessed a whole year in a war.
- It is weird. A lot of people try to ask me political questions. I'm not a politician.
- When you work with a great director, you realise you are far from being a director.
- I used to play football all the time. In the U.S., people don't play football, so I had to learn basketball. Looking back, that's what I like about my life - doing new things, having a new perspective.
- I was never interested in becoming an actor. I was directing videos. I was never into acting. I was into shooting music videos. I've only ever been behind the camera. Never in front of it.
- What I believe will make my acting career successful going forward is hard work. I like to challenge myself. Then it's the people I meet and choosing the projects I want to work on correctly. There's a lot of characters I can play.
