When celebrities come into the Bustle office, whether it's for a photoshoot, videoshoot, or a Facebook Live, we want to give them the chance to leave their mark. Literally. So we hand them a pen, a piece of paper, a few questions, and ask them to get creative. The rest is up to them. This time, actor O-T Fagbenle is leaving his mark in the Bustle Booth.

You may remember this British Nigerian from HBO's 2014 series Looking. But before then, O-T Fagbenle could be found gracing the theater stages of John Guare's award-winning play Six Degrees of Separation, and Sir Trevor Nunn's Porgy and Bess. Currently, Fagbenle plays opposite Elisabeth Moss in the highly anticipated Hulu adaption of Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel The Handmaid's Tale. The actor takes on the role of Moss' onscreen hubby, Luke, and his performance is refreshing in the otherwise dark drama.

Oh, and fun fact: He told Bustle he thinks the critic's review of the series being "so relevant today" is a bit off kilter. Because as far as Fagbenle's concerned, "It’s just always been relevant."

Before today, it's been clear that Fagbenle is a woke and talented actor. And now, thanks to his Bustle Booth, you can get the scoop on the many things he can't even Google about himself. Sit back and enjoy.
