More about our guest Lewis was thought to have been born in Jamaica at first. However, in an interview for the 229th edition of Empire, Lewis stated that “As a result, I lied on my resume. Because I was born in Trinidad, I claimed that I had done all of my actings there, figuring that no one would notice.” Despite this, Lewis claimed to be from the Caribbean in the same interview. In a separate interview, Lewis acknowledged that he has Jamaican ancestors. Lewis hails from New Jersey, according to Reap Mediazine In 1992, he was first recognized for his work in Cool Runnings.
