Charles Awurum Exposes What Most Actors Do To Get Roles

Nollywood actor, Charles Awurum has disclosed how some entertainers in the movie industry pay money for movie role so as to gain popularity.

The actor made this known during an interview with the Punch where he noted that actors now partake in movies just for the popularity and not for the passion of the role.

He added that this has led many producers to demand money from the actors which is not the way it is rightly done.

“People just shoot movies anyhow these days. If you do not have enough money to shoot a movie, you stop. You don’t just shoot any movie. This is why most of us, the oldies, no longer partake in every film.

“With N200,000, some people will move to shoot a film. Actors now pay to partake in movies just for popularity, instead of them to be paid. And where there are no producers or directors that are professionally trained, they just take a space somewhere and they shoot a film.”

Charles Awurum further said that people who are eager to be on screen are not trained, hence the reason some movies produced here cannot be matched with the western world.

“When you act in movies that will not go anywhere, you do not expect to be applauded. These people eager to be on the screen are not trained, paid, they do everything by themselves and they still pay for it.”
