We have photographed a lot of talented actors in the past year but none with the level of intensity as Malachi Kirby. His face was so expressive at one point we thought someone he knew walked into the room because his whole face lit up, but no, he was just acting. Kirby plays Kunte Kinte in History's production of "Roots" and we photographed him and others from the cast for The New York Times
