Happy Birthday, Tomiwa Edun!

by Duke

Babatunde Adetomiwa Edun, born in 1985, is a distinguished UK-based Nigerian actor celebrated for his versatile roles.

Renowned for portraying Sir Elyan in Merlin, Marcus Young in Bates Motel, and Alex Hunter in FIFA 17, FIFA 18, and FIFA 19, Edun has left an indelible mark in the realms of television and gaming.

Born in Lagos, Nigeria, to Nigerian financier Olawale Edun and the half-Ghanaian, half-English Amy Adwoa (née Appiah), Edun’s diverse heritage enriches his identity.

Having relocated to the United Kingdom at the age of 11, Edun embarked on an educational journey that led him to Eton College at 13.

Later, he pursued Classics at Christ’s College, Cambridge, where his intellectual prowess shone, culminating in winning the dissertation prize for his thesis on Homer’s Odyssey in his final year.

Despite familial encouragement to enter banking, he followed his passion for acting, attending the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA).

Cheers to an accomplished actor and a brilliant mind on his birthday!
