The Cookoff Cast: Eugene Zimbudzi

1 Mins read

“I never thought I would be an actor, but here I am – even my family is still in shock.” Meet Today’s Spotlight Eugene Zimbudzi who plays Tapiwa – the son of lead character Anesu, played by @Tendai_Chitima – in the award-winning Zimbabwean film @CookOffZim, coming to Netflix on 1 June.
Eugene is 14 years old and was just 11 years old during the filming of Cook Off. He is also a poet and a commercial model. He loves cooking breakfast, especially a delicious dish that he calls “hollandaise eggs” – he first learnt to cook them during the filming of @CookOffZim, watch out for a special scene with @trnguni, who plays Prince.
Eugene has been selected to perform poetry at his school every Friday at Assembly, and he likes to use poetry to inspire other children at his school.
He loves watching adventure and comedy movies. His favourite things to watch are The Avengers films and the show Black-ish, as he likes the poetry involved in the acting. His favourite actors is Will Smith, Tom Holland and Actress Scarlett Johansson. Eugene’s dream was not only to see actors in movies but to watch himself in movies, and Cook Off made his dreams come true.
This quote by Albert Einstein is one of Eugene’s favourites: ‘Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.’ “I really like this quote because it inspires me to wake up every day with the mind of a genius – I believe I can do everything that I can put mind to. I never thought I would be an actor, but here I am – even my family is still in shock.”
