Regardless of OC Ukeje’s efforts and feats in the movie industry, the actor feels he has not done enough for himself as much as he likes to.
In an encounter with him, he told our correspondent, “I don’t think anyone is ever satisfied with what he or she has been able to achieve. We always strive to do better, be better with our craft and attain some personal sense of perfection. I believe I am still growing, still learning and trying to master the craft. As an actor, it’s important to want to do more challenging roles and be in bigger films as well.”
According to the star actor of Potato Potahto, which was premiered recently, there is a need for one to be conscious of projects or movies one takes part in.
He explained, “For instance, I accepted to be part of Potato Potahto because of the storyline and the people involved. The director, Shirley Frimpong-Manso, is a great person and her work is pretty defined. I have had the advantage of working with Joselyn Dumas on a project previously; so, it was easy to flow with her.
“The movie is focused on a divorced couple living together. It has great actors like Joke Silva, Blossom Chukwujekwu, Lala Akindoju and Chris Attoh. It is now in the cinema; I think it’s something people will like to see.”
While noting that filming Potato Potahto was hectic because the crew shot for only a few days and he had to leave town, he also admitted that he enjoyed himself and had fun on set.
