Chukwudi Iwuji (born 1975, Nigeria), usually shortened to Chuk Iwuji or Chuck Iwuji, is a Nigerian-born actor, active in the United Kingdom.


In 1985, when he was aged 10, his parents sent him to a boarding school in England after they moved from Nigeria to Ethiopia to work for the United Nations. He then attended Yale University to study economics, before moving to drama school in Wisconsin. He graduated from the latter in 2000, moving back to the United Kingdom. There he has worked onstage for the Royal Shakespeare Company (replacing David Oyelowo in the title role of the Henry VI trilogy in the 2006 revival of the This England: The Histories project), the Royal National Theatre (Welcome to Thebes, 2010), the Old Vic (in a 2011 Richard III[1]) and the Comedy Theatre (in a 2009 production of The Misanthrope), as well as British film, radio and television.
