David Harewood Plot Twist

    • TV & Film

As CIA counter-terrorism boss David Estes in Homeland, and the Martian Manhunter in DC’s Super Girl, David Harewood is an actor known for characters that ooze strength and confidence. But off-screen David is a true thespian and – as he explains to Tom – has lived a life of twists and turns that he channels into his work. He touches on growing up in Birmingham with racism in the air, being down to his last £80 (twenty years into his career) before getting his big American break, and the pivotal moment where he suffered a serious psychotic breakdown.
This episode contains explicit language, discussion of racism, and mental illness.
