Actor John Dumelo has disclosed that growing up; acting was not on his card. He said growing up, he wanted to be in a field to “deal with the health of the female reproductive system; uterus, vagina and ovaries” termed as a gynaecologist.
He told Glitz Africa Magazine, “I wanted to be a gynaecologist”, continuing that “to take care of women of course”. John has been linked with many ladies after his ‘surprise’ entry into the Ghana Movie Industry. So it is no surprise that he wanted to be a gynaecologist.
Though he studied Engineering at the university yet wanted to be a gynaecologist, John narrated how he ‘mistakenly’ re-entered the movie industry after he featured in ‘Baby Thief’ as Saka, a boy who found her kidnapped sister in a village through a birth mark.
“I think it all started one Sunday after church. I called a friend of mine to ask what she’s been up to and she said she was going for an audition for a TV show so my adventurous self said why not, let’s go! When I finally got there, the director dared me to take off my trousers and walk around the room in my boxers if I’m not shy and there were about 100 ladies in the room” He narrated.
He continued: “For a minute I was like is he crazy but again my sense of adventure made me say yes, so I did that. I was hired for my first TV job with TV3 which was a game show called ‘Caesars House’. I started doing a few TV series; one was ‘Sun City’”.
John’s first movie was ‘Kind Is Mine’. He said that was his challenging role because he had to act like a King, very authoritative and regal.
John Dumelo is the cover face on the maiden edition of the ‘Glitz Africa Magazine’, a new lifestyle and celebrity magazine and he is described as the ‘modest sometime-shy good looking actor with the boy-door charm’.
John told GhanaCelebrities.Com his expectations for 2012 is to be “Closer to God, do very good movies, do more charity work and also make sure that J.Melo products are found in every shop around the world”.
