Director of the award winning movie ‘Figurine’, Kunle Afolayan has said that, after using Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson in his new movie, he is ready to feature other Ghanaian actors but if only they will interpret the script as a Ghanaian.
He said the above in an exclusive interview with GhanaCelebrities.Com after a short press preview of his latest movie ‘Phone Swap’. “I’m not going to feature them, if they are not going to play Ghanaian”, he said when asked if he will consider using other Ghanaian actors.
Actress Lydia Forson is the first Ghanaian to be featured by the award winning director, and for the better part of the movie spoke her indigenous language; Twi. According to the director, that added a lot to the movie.
He said a Ghanaian acting as a Ghanaian depends on the story. “If I’m doing a story that involves a Ghanaian and a Nigeria or a cross boarder story, why will I want to play Ramsey Nouah as a Ghanaian? Why will I want to play Majid as a Nigerian? No, for me, it won’t sell, it won’t work that way.” (more…)
