NIGERIAN ACTOR, CONPHIDANCE, LANDS RECURRING ROLE ON ‘COMPLICATIONS,’ A USA NETWORK TV SERIES

Conphidance, a multi-talented entertainer of Nigerian Descent, will soon be seen as the recurring character, CJ, on “Complications,” USA Network’s new television series from Matt Nix, the creator and executive producer of “Burn Notice.”  The show stars Jason O’Mara (“Vegas”) as Dr. John Ellison, Jessica Szohr (“Gossip Girl”) as Gretchen, a reckless but capable nurse, Beth Riesgraf (“Leverage”) as John’s wife, Samantha, and Lauren Stamile (“Burn Notice”) as John’s by-the-book coworker, Dr. Bridget O’Neill.

He graduated with a degree in Biological Engineering, receiving minors in Biomechanics and African Studies, with a specialization in Visual and Performing Arts. He wasn’t able to convince his parents about his love for the performing arts so he snuck into a few acting classes, and wrote plays and comedy sketches to hone his craft. After relocating to Atlanta, he began independent study, attending classes and workshops, including performing live comedy sketches and stand-up comedy to further his growth.
Since relocating to Atlanta in 2009, he has led and co-starred many independent films in the southeast, as well as in the thriving Nollywood industry starring in films next to Michael Blackson and Van Vicker. He is also known as the creator and writer of the African sketch comedy series, Day Buy Day with Onye-Ala.

 Additionally, he has landed television roles on The CW’s “The Originals” and USA Network’s “Satisfaction” which have been renewed for a second season.  Additionally, he has worked as a musician in films and TV shows, including NBC’s “Constantine.”

“Complications” centers on a disillusioned suburban doctor who, while still dealing with the emotional effects of his daughter’s death, unexpectedly becomes a vigilante hero when he intervenes in a drive-by shooting, saving a young boy’s life. When John learns the boy is still marked for death, he’s compelled to save him at any cost. Through this journey, he must compromise his morals, often doing the wrong thing for all the right reasons. Conphidance plays the role of CJ, the young boy’s close relative.

In addition to working on major film and television productions, he also writes, directs, and produces comedy sketches and short films. Around Atlanta and in neighboring states, you can find him in front of small and large audiences, hosting events, making people laugh, and keeping the show flowing smoothly.

“Through the arts, I strive to inspire the world towards positivity by building self-confidence one person at a time” says Conphidance. You can see the phenomenal work of Conphidance as CJ in “Complications” which premieres on Thursday, June 18 at 9/8c.
