Florence Nzenwefi is an actor, writer, musician and producer. He is currently shooting in a lead role as Bob in upcoming psychological thriller "Demon Days"and also a lead role in the short film "Haven", still in pre-production.
Florence has made appearances in many on-screen productions, including "The Legend of Tarzan", "Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them", "Aladdin", "Farming", "In The Long Run", "The Life Coach" and of course - "Savage" as lead, Mokonzi.
Florence fell in love with the film when explained to him by producer Allison Edwards on a chance meeting in Brixton's Pret Á Manger. He felt on a strong level that a story like this must be told with authenticity, passion and emotional clarity. Despite the obvious harsh truth(s) of this production, Florence remained adamant that this role was meant for him empathising San's struggles with similar experiences to his own growing up, stating "There is a lot of miseducation and misunderstandings out there, so much that I and countless others don't know about. Ironically, I think that's why Mokonzi's story resonates with me so much; I am very sensitive when it comes to slavery and black related topics and yet I wasn't informed of this monstrosity towards human beings solely due to their pigmentation; I felt like I owe this telling this story to my ancestors."
Florence, who is twenty-fours years old admitted that it is one of the hardest things he has ever had to do - to embody San - a man not at all fictitious due to the foundations of his characters creation; someone much more like a channeled experience of only a handful of victims at this targeted time in history against his people.
