Spotlight on Carmen Ejogo

Carmen and Jeffery
Some of you may already know her as Mrs. Jeffrey Wright and some may know her for her supporting role in the Halle Berry-produced HBO film, "Lackawanna Blues." {2005} Either way that's fine with the private Scottish-Nigerian actress, Carmen Ejogo. "I still have a difficult time when people recognize me. I like to keep parts of myself out of the public eye," remarks Ejogo in the November issue of Vibe. Next up for Carmen are the acting projects, NBC drama Kidnapped, The Brave co-starring Jodie Foster and Pride and Glory co-starring Edward Norton. "If my projects take off, he might within a year be known as Mr. Carmen Ejogo." Carmen resides in Brooklyn with her husband and two children.
