However, the names and professions of his parents are not known.

From his early days, Chuku Modu was drawn to two career paths in boxing and acting. Encouraged by his big body, he started training as a boxer from age 12. Around that time also, he began to attend Globe Theater, London. 10 years later, he went for professional training in acting at Richmond Drama School, a part of Richmond School And Sixth Form College located in North Yorkshire, England. This lasted only for a year but it gave the young actor all the leverage he needed in his rise to acting stardom.

Within two years of leaving Richmond, Chuku began to receive credited roles in short films as earlier stated. He featured as an ‘Apprentice’ in The Dawn (2014) and ‘Paul’ in Loft No 5 (2014). He also played an unidentified role in another 2014 film, The Last Days of Margaret Thatcher, written and co-directed by Hugo Obregon.

2016 saw the young actor begin to really make his entrance into the world of globally renowned actors. First, that was the year he acted in The Game of Thrones. He also acted as a ‘Mauritian Waiter’ in the romance film Me Before You, as ‘Paris’ in Heavy Weight, as ‘Rick’ in Open All Night, and as ‘Talib’ in Survive.
