Winston secured his Yale Fine Arts degree in 2013, but unlike Lupita, he didn’t have immediate mainstream success.
He did however make some noteworthy appearances in hit television shows.
Of course, he had his crime drama cameo, which is common for most actors, when he appeared on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. But then, he had a recurring role as Dominic Besson on the sci-fi crime drama Person of Interest in 2014 and by 2016, he had a three-episode arc on Modern Family playing a star football player taken in by Cameron and Mitchell.
Two years after this, everything would change with Black Panther, and his character M’Baku became a certified sex symbol.
There’s nowhere to go but up for the over 6 feet actor.
You can watch him give another career boosting performance in Us when it hits theaters March 22!
