Andre Royo


Born: 18 / 7 / 1968 , Bronx, New York , Usa –

BIOGRAPHY:

Royo made his acting debut in a minor role in the 1998 film L.A. Without a Map. In 1999, he made one-episode guest appearances on the television series Law & Order and Third Watch.

In 2000, he had a small role in John Singleton’s remake of the 1971 blaxploitation film Shaft. He also appeared in the 2002 movie G, which was based on The Great Gatsby.

Royo is mostly known for his starring role on the HBO crime-drama series The Wire as the drug addict and confidential informant Reginald “Bubbles” Cousins, a regular character since the show’s first season.

Royo’s portrayal of this character was so convincing that, during on-location filming, he was once approached by a Baltimore resident and given a small package of heroin, with the man saying to the in-character Royo: “Man, you need a fix more than I do.” Royo has called this incident his “street Oscar.”
