Kit replied that we were the first to tell him he is a household name and very humbly replied that “every actor is very happy to have any type of recognition, as that is why they take on the roles that they do”.  Kit also went on to say that the production for “Pompeii” was “exhausting” but without a doubt an incredible project.

We asked Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje whether or not he enjoys portraying a hero or a villain to which he commented “villain of course” with a sly wink.  He also spoke about how much fun he had with his role in “Pompeii” and how much he enjoyed learning about the history of the region.
