Most people are familiar with the name Bob Marley and some of the man’s music, but in the time since the reggae icon’s death, some of the other aspects of his life have been largely forgotten. The new biopic, Bob Marley: One Love, focuses a lot of its energy on those lesser-known stories about the star. And, as the film’s star, Kingsley Ben-Adir, said a lot of those stories are quite personal. In preparing for the role, he revealed, he spoke extensively with the Marley family, who taught him more than he’d ever expected to know about the man he’d be playing.
