Why I Am Always Cast As A Wicked Person In Movies – Patience Ozokwo
Patience Ozokwo needs absolutely no introduction when it comes to Nollywood. The Nigerian actress is a legend who made a name for herself due to the wicked roles she interprets to perfection in the movies.
In an interview with Igbo TV, she explains why she often interprets wicked roles in movies.
Why did they always cast you for wicked roles in movies?
It’s a movie and you can’t interpret your personal role; you will always interpret other person’s character. That is why it’s called make-believe. If you tell me to play my character, I can’t even play my character because I don’t know how I behave. When you are acting it’s entirely a different ball game. You are either acting a good or bad person, so the important thing is to be able to interpret the character you are given.
Would you concentrate on Christian movies?
Most of her movies teach morals and that of God too. There are things I can no longer do again in movies.
Can you give us examples?
Although, I have never done some of them before. I will never go nude. I will not and I will never welcome anybody do it in a movie I act unless you have shot yours and gone. You know some of these crazy producers will remove your head and put someone else body as if it was you that went naked so you need to sign that such won’t be done to my pictures. You might just act and leave the next thing you start seeing something else you will now start wondering when you acted that scene, all these needs to be discussed.
