The 23 Year Old Denzel Washington
3 April 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Having graduated from university and spent a year learning drama, the 23 year old Denzel Washington landed his screen debut as an 18 year old athlete in 'Wilma'. He did not have the sexy appeal then that women associate him with now, but it was the beginning of his screen career.
