It Was Actually Music Not Drama That Got Regé-Jean Interested in a Career In the Arts
The actor formed a punk band with his brother in his rebellious teenage years, singing and playing the drums. Fittingly for a punk singer, his hair has been dyed everything from blue and green to purple. Explaining how his start in music nudged him in the direction of the thespian life, Regé-Jean said, "When I got involved in the punk scene, my notion of what a career was changed. I realised that a career in the arts was actually about having the people and community to support you making your art."
