Interview with David Oyelowo, Star and Producer of Captive

In March 2005, Ashley Smith was held hostage in her apartment by Brian Nichols, an escaped killer hell-bent on seeing his newborn son. As Nichols kept Smith captive for seven hours, the pair slowly came to a crossroads between hope and despair. Smith had bonded with Nichols by reading aloud Rick Warren’s best-selling book The Purpose Driven Life.

The new film, Captive, based on Smith’s account of the ordeal in her book Unlikely Angel, tells the story of how this one-time meth addict overcame her vices to survive through the worst night of her life and forge a new, productive path for herself. The film features standout performances from Kate Mara as Ashley Smith and David Oyelowo as Brian Nichols.

Oyelowo burst into the mainstream with his brilliant portrayal of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in Selma (2014). He’s also showcased his considerable talent with turns in such films »
