George Berthou, Half Ghanaian & Half French Actor Welcomes Himself Into The Ghana Industry + Photos!

The Ghana Movie Industry has seen many changes. Nevertheless, it appears the industry has reached a stage where it has opened its arms for light-skinned or mixed race actors.

Talking about light-skinned actors; Majid Michel, Van Vicker, Frank Artus, Nadia Buria, Juliet Ibrahim, Nikki Samonas, Zynnel Zuh among others come in mind. Though some section of the public holds the viewpoint that, producers seemed to rely on light skinned actors to sell their movies since Ghanaians are obsessed with fair looking actors.

Joining the light skinned galore is George Berthou. George is an actor and an aspiring director, “Actually I’m an actor but I studied directing a bit, so I have directed a movie titled ‘Genesis’”, he told GhanaCelebrities.Com. His mother hails from Ashanti Region of Ghana and his father is from France, therefore making him a half Ghanaian and a half French.

The actor born in France and brought to Ghana at an early age has been in the industry for little over five years and done over twenty-five movies and directed one. He believed among all his movies, it was the one titled ‘Love & Bullet’ that brought him the fame he is now professed to be enjoying.

Talking about his light-skinned colour being an advantage to him, he declined that assertion but however agreed that, there are some light-skinned actors whose acting abilities are questionable but yet are very active in the industry.

“It’s not my main reason for being in the industry. I believe I’m blessed with the talent that I must make good use of it before I pass on to my maker. So, it’s not because I’m fair or because of my complexion or whatever. It is but because I want to exhibit that talent I have. That’s the main reason. I can tell you that, there are a whole of fair [actors] guys out there who cannot act and if you cannot act why are they still there?”

According to George, after getting the opportunity to feature in his first movie, he decided to further his studies by taking a course in directing. George doesn’t look up to any actor inGhanabut considers Majid Michel as the best inGhana.

Aside English, George speaks fluent Twi and little French. He has featured in movies such as ‘Love & Bullet’, ‘Genesis’, ‘No Sex No Wedding’, ‘Sika Ba, ‘Dirty Game’ among others.

  2. wow… love this guy, seen about three of his movies, very good and love the fact that he’s not embarrass about speaking Twi in movies. On like other Ghanaian light skin, so call wanna be white (obroni). Walking around…. I don’t speak Twi or other native language… Please…
    Multi language is a gift, no matter what language.

    • @Akosua, Yeah, watched only a couple of his movies, and it looks like he’s really good and talented. He speaks very fluent twi (and English) as well, and that is a plus. he’ll have to work hard if he’s to go places. we know both Majid and Van are not gifted actors. But they work really hard to improve by day. This guy looks like he’s gifted, but that alone isn’t enough. With Majid’s hardwork, he cango places

  4. It amuses me to see how people in Africa love light skin so much. I have no problem with it if the “actor/actress” can actually act but I just cannot understand how Van and Nadia have become so popular. He is terrible and looks like a million people I’ve seen before. She is ok and also looks like girls I went to school with. But I guess in the Caribbean we are used to these types of faces that’s why darker men are so preferred here. I think that John Dumelo is fine but needs a gym and many Caribbean girls like Jim Iyke, cause he stays fit and has the bad boy streak.  Well I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder cause this guy is certainly no Boris Kudjoe. If Ghanians want light skinned actors at least find very good looking ones if they refuse to stay true to the craft…please!!! As a Caribbean girl I do prefer darker, I say Chris Attoh all the way….baby!!!
