Biography

Ike started acting at an early age, getting his first taste of the West End at nine in an Adrian Mitchell production ‘Clapham Common Tramps’ at the Arts Theatre, Leicester Square.

At eleven, he moved to Lagos where his continued interest in acting lead to roles at the National Theatre, Lagos in award winning productions of Much Ado About Nothing, The Merchant Of Venice and Ola Rotimis ‘Our Husband Has Gone Mad again’.

Since returning to England he’s been in productions with the London Shakespeare Workout, ‘Black Atlas’ and at the Gielgud Theatre in ‘Barista Blues’. He’s also appeared in both TV (Footballers Wives, Dream Team and Holby City) and films (Calendar Girls, Closer and Derailed opposite Clive Owen).
