Cyril Nri
Born 1961 (age 48–49)
Nigeria, Africa
Occupation Actor, writer, film director

Cyril Nri (born 1961 in Nigeria) is a British actor, writer and director. He attended the Young Vic Youth Theatre in Waterloo, London. He trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, and is probably best known for playing the role of Superintendent Adam Okaro, now Chief Superintendent, in the long-running ITV police drama The Bill. He also had a cameo role as Graham, a barrister colleague of Miles and Anna, in several episodes of the cult BBC TV drama series This Life.

Nri attended Holland Park Comprehensive School in West London and appeared in a school production of Othello.

In 2008, he starred alongside other former The Bill favourites, Philip Whitchurch and Russell Boulter in an episode of BBC1's Waking the Dead.

In 2009 he appeared in Law & Order UK as a judge on a case.

He also appeared in a 'Think 25' training video for Tesco staff.

Personal life

Nri is bisexual, although he hates the term and in his own words, he enjoys 'people'. So he wouldn't say that he is gay or bisexual, but just that he likes having a good time whether it be with a man or woman. He also has two children. He broke up with his ex-wife Diana in 1997 after 14 years together after they drifted apart and realised that the only thing they still had in common was their children.

Nri's family are Igbo; they fled the country prior to the Biafra War. He moved to Portugal when he was seven, and later to London. As of 2006, Nri lives in South London.
