Student Success

Student Name
Emmanuel Kabongo

Before landing his role as Junior Lolo on 21 Thunder, Emmanuel Kabongo had attended 357 auditions. The rising star knew that getting his name out there would be tough, but now that his hard work is paying off, he’s taking the time to savour his success. Originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kabongo moved to Toronto from South Africa when he was 11. Before he discovered his passion for film and television, his first love was sports: basketball and soccer in particular. He attended George Brown College to play on the school’s basketball team and enrolled in a one-year theatre program to keep his spot. By the end of the year, Kabongo had acted in a student film, which solidified his decision to pursue acting as a career. Read more about Emmanuel's story.
