Nigerian actress Patience Ozorkwor has revealed that she sometimes breaks into tears when she watches the characters she plays in movies.
The veteran Nigerian star is well known for playing ‘wicked’ characters who enjoy making life difficult for others.
Speaking in an interview, Ozorkwor admitted that whilst she plays the characters to perfection, watching the movies later makes her cry due to the wickedness on display.
“Nearly all the movies where I played wicked roles made me cry because I remember what that character had done to somebody. I do these jobs to the best of my knowledge because I want to sit down at home, watch and cry over what I’m doing to people”. Ozorkwor revealed.
She added: “There was a movie I did many years ago, it was titled Prophecy- what moved me to tears in that movie was that I was so wicked that I seized feeding bottle from the mouth of a new-born baby who lost his mother and I was supposed to be taking care of the baby. The baby was crying, I seized his feeding bottle and threw it away. I wept profusely, the director stopped shooting until I was able to control myself.”
She continued: “Then I summoned the courage to continue. If someone had done it in real life, I would have exposed the fellow to the world to see. There was another one where I went to take my sister’s daughter from the village, what I did to the girl, if any human being can do it to a fellow human being, I don’t know what God would do to that person in turn. I met her in the kitchen, beat her so much that she fell down the stairs, rolled down and died from broken head and pains all over. I’d been playing wicked roles but those two movies are exceptionally horrible. I doubt that any human being would do that to anyone”.
