Nollywood actor, Kenneth Okolie started out as a model, won the Mr Nigeria pageant in 2010 and has gone on to shine in his acting career by securing roles in top movies like Royal Hibiscus Hotel.
However, the actor has been accused of shunning movie productions that are of low budget and favoring the high budget scripts.
In an interview with Punch Newspaper, Okolie has countered the claims saying, “I don’t have any specific consideration before choosing scripts. Once the storyline is good and the script moves me, I would accept, whether it is a small-budget or big-budget movie. There are some small movies that I have done and there are big movies that I have considered as well. I always like to support people so that they can also be of help to me in the future when it’s time for my own project.”
On best performance yet, he said, “I put my whole heart in all the movies I’ve been involved in. I don’t have any particular one that stands out. I always make sure I deliver on every performance.”
On what he does to prepare himself before going on set, the model-turned-actor said, “I read my script and familiarise myself with the character I’m supposed to play. I have to immerse myself in the character before I can play it convincingly. I also pray.”
