Lights! Camera! Action! Prabhu Kumar dreamed of being in a movie. The 2010 Christel House India graduate’s wish has been fulfilled. He’s a background actor in a major Hollywood production from acclaimed writer/director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Trilogy, Dunkirk, Inception) “It was super-duper awesome!” says Prabhu.Prabhu moved to Estonia after graduation and works for TransferWise, an online money transfer service. “I love what I do,” he says. Prabhu discovered the film production was in Estonia and looking for extras. He auditioned and was cast, spending three days on the movie set. “They shot the scene so many times,” he smiles. “I loved each and every moment of it. But it does require a lot of patience.”
Now living independently, Prabhu is pleased to help support his brother’s education and his family back in India. “I’m a person who was born in a slum,” he says. Joining Christel House changed his and his family’s life for the better. Prabhu is grateful for Christel House India supporters. “I literally thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are transforming lives.”
Prabhu’s movie debut, “Tenet,” will be released in 2020.
