About Uzo Aduba

Uzo Aduba: From Broadway to the Big Screen

Uzo Aduba was born on February 10, 1981, in Boston, Massachusetts, to Nigerian parents. She grew up in a tight-knit family, where education was highly valued. Aduba attended Boston University, where she studied classical voice and competed in track and field. However, her true passion was acting, and she eventually moved to New York City to pursue her dream.

Aduba began her career on Broadway, where she appeared in several productions, including "Godspell" and "Coram Boy." She also landed a recurring role on the hit TV series "Orange Is the New Black," which premiered in 2013. Aduba's portrayal of Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren earned her critical acclaim and numerous awards, including two Primetime Emmy Awards.

In addition to her work on "Orange Is the New Black," Aduba has appeared in several films, including "Tallulah" and "American Pastoral." She has also lent her voice to several animated projects, including "My Little Pony: The Movie" and "Steven Universe."

Aduba is known for her versatility as an actress, as well as her commitment to social justice issues. She has been an advocate for the LGBTQ+ community and has spoken out against police brutality and racial injustice.

Despite her success, Aduba remains humble and grounded. She credits her family and her Nigerian heritage for keeping her grounded and focused on what's important. "I come from a family of hard workers," she says. "They instilled in me the importance of working hard and staying true to yourself."

As Aduba continues to make her mark in Hollywood, she remains committed to using her platform to make a difference. "I want to be a part of the change that I want to see in the world," she says. "I want to use my voice to make a difference."
