Nollywood thespian, Nkechi Blessing has said she believes there is nothing wrong in passionately kissing one’s co-star in a movie.
The actress came under intense heat following a video she shared on her IG, which saw her kissing a young actor – in light of this, she shared her thoughts with Sunday Scoop.
In her own words,
“There was nothing real about that scene. It was just an act and there were many people with us on that set. When we watch American films, we appreciate them for how natural they act, but when it comes to our things, we criticise our actors for doing their jobs well. Acting is make-believe and we need to make our fans believe whatever we show them on screen.”
The title of the movie is Bad Market and it was directed by Yomi Gold. I have no fears that people would criticise me for doing my job well. Since the beginning of my career, this is the first time that I would be locking lips with any actor. We cannot be faking things like this anymore. If we don’t play the role well, it is the same Africans that would bash us for not doing it as well as it is done in the western world.”
On if she can ever go nude for a movie role, she said;
“Kissing is the height of it for me and I think that is normal. I don’t see myself ever going nude in a movie,” she added.
