Biography and career

De Bankole was born in Abidjan, Cote D'Ivoire to Yoruba parents from Benin. His grandparents are from Nigeria. He has a degree in Acting from Cours Simon and a Masters in Mathematics from the Universite de Paris.

De Bankole began his acting career in 1984, appearing in French films. In 1997, he relocated to the US where he has continued his career.
