Trivia and Quotes

  • empty

    Delroy Lindo is a true actor. You really believe that he got into acting because he loves it for what it is. You'll never see him in any tabloids and you won't hear any gossip about him. In his roles, you sense more realism than many other actor's who are considered more talented than he. Of all of his roles in all of his movies, my favorite has to be "Gone In Sixty Seconds."moreless
  • Why I admire Delroy Lindo.

    You want me to tell the world what I think of Delroy Lindo, right?

    Well, quite frankly, I think Delroy Lindo is an inspiration.

    He was the first black person I ever met.

    I remember the day he started at Ealdham Primary School in Eltham - this was 1962, if I remember correctly - and he was introduced to us at the school assembly by the headmaster Mr. Frome. He was the school’s first ever black pupil (and still the only one, I think, when I left the school the following year). He was in the year below me. I remember he was tall and gangly and good at soccer.

    Many of the pupils at that school went on to live very ordinary lives (myself included), but he went on to become a Hollywood actor. How cool is that?

    And he's a very talented actor, too! :)

    Kudos and blessings, Delroy. You're a star!moreless
