Actor David Bankole was born and raised in London, the son of Nigerian parents. Inspired by a teacher at school, he found an early love for storytelling. He set it aside, but years later, this enthusiasm was re-ignited, and he began exploring it by attending classes and theatrical performances.
David currently attends Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. While in training there, his roles have included Yepikhodov in The Cherry Orchard, Watchman and Aigisthos in Agamemnon, Romeo and Benvolio in Romeo and Juliet, Sir Andrew Aguecheek in Twelfth Night, and Tom Fashion in The Relapse.
