He is the third of five children sired by the union of Chief Stephen T. Anga (JP) and Mrs. Evelyn Nyengimina T. Anga.
With his father being a highly respected chief in his hometown Ogu (in Ogu/Bolo LGA of Rivers State), Walter- like his other siblings- was raised in a very traditional background allied with a liberal Christian bias. An upbringing of this kind shaped his early life and saw him blossom into an open-minded individual as well as a liberal social progressive.
At the end of his university days, Walter Anga ventured into the world of movie making. And after a few tries, he got his first break in front of a movie camera in 2003 with a role in the blockbuster hit, LABISTA. Since then, he has gone on to feature in over 100 movies- garnering massive experience and gaining more than a decent dose of exposure in the courtesy of many tours round the country. And just like fine wine, he has improved with age.
Walter Anga is an influential member of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Port Harcourt Chapter- having served as its Director of Guild Services (DGS) in 2008 – and an ardent campaigner for the revitalization and renaissance of the arts in Rivers State.
