Conversations with Adwoa Duncan-Williams

Today we’d like to introduce you to Adwoa Duncan-Williams.

Hi Adwoa, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
Born from Ghanaian parents, being a go-getter and hard worker has always been embedded in Adwoa Duncan-Williams’ bloodstream. Knowing acting and performing was always the true calling, it finally got to the point to take that leap and finally pursue it professionally. Relocating to New York City, the journey began and has truly been a journey. Having taken such a deep dive into the industry, the doors have opened tremendously, the talent kicking in doors. From training in the hustle capital, New York, to graduating and pursuing the craft in the height of a pandemic, Adwoa has done it. It’s lead-to groundbreaking major network roles, digital series and leading feature films for her. Taking the reigns and showing extraordinary strides in the profession.

Theater plays, feature films, shorts and series, Adwoa has been a lead and the lead in these all.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I think graduating during the height of a pandemic will always be an accomplishment in its self, It’s not been easy, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I don’t necessarily like to think of anything being a struggle, but always a lesson. A lesson to improve, to remain humble, to grind and most importantly pave my own way in the industry. Managing expectations for me has been something I’ve wanted to make sure I do- doing my job, leaving production speechless, wanting more and challenging myself to be even better has probably been the biggest thing I’ve battled with so far.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
Film & TV Actor and Theater

Obtaining a critical role in a major network film by is tremendous achievement and something to pay attention to. A platform that broadcast across America is major in itself. Really having created own materials, tools and ways to do her best in self-tapes to the audition room, to being on set is something that will always be reflected on, in a positive light.

I set myself apart from others because I’m my own individual. I believe it’s important to know your own magic, to support and cheerlead yourself. Get better, feel passionate about being a student of the craft forever- because you’re striving for yourself and not others. Or simply losing focus on the why- my why has always been focused around telling meaningful, powerful, relatable stories that make an audience feel some type of way.
