Entertainment : Peter Mensah plays Akwey [the Horse Clan Leader] in Avatar
Did you know that Akwey –who is the clan leader of the Horse Clan -of the Plains [and is witnessed fighting in the final battle on his Direhorse] in Avatar is played by Ghanaian born actor -Peter Mensah? I’m so impressed by this handsome brother’s acting -and somewhat surprised that I haven’t heard of him sooner –anyway, the following is more information about Peter Mensah from wikipedia.
He appeared in such films as 300, Hidalgo, Tears of the Sun, Jason X, Harvard Man, Bless the Child and has made television appearances in Star Trek: Enterprise, Tracker, Witchblade, Blue Murder, Relic Hunter, Earth: Final Conflict, Highlander: The Raven and La Femme Nikita.Mensah also stars in the short film "The Seed", produced and directed by Linkin Park's DJ Joe Hahn, and recently in The Incredible Hulk and Avatar.
Recently, he did the voice and likeness of Sgt. Zach Hammond in EA's video game Dead Space. Mensah, who has practiced martial arts since he was 6, is now playing the character "Doctore" in Spartacus: Blood and Sand and was on the Spartacus Panel at Comic Con 2009.
