Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson-Okojie has spoken out on how her roles in movies have changed since she got married.
In a recent interview with LANRE ODUKOYA, Mrs Okojie reveals how she is coping with being conscious of her present marital status and giving her fans what they really want to see.
Her words, “First and foremost, everybody knows that I love movies that treat vices, then entertain and educate at same time.
When I’m picking a script those elements must be there. It must be part of the spices.”
“Reunion preaches against rape, the real value of true friendship. People watch movies and have different interpretation.
The movie is about friends coming together to help one another heal.
It also tackles deceit, you must not trust anyone, people have their dark sides irrespective of how they look outside.
It’s a national anthem that people have three faces, the one they show the world, the one for the family and loved ones and the one they keep to themselves.”
If you have issues, you have to come out and say it how it is, so guilt won’t kill you inside. That’s the summary of what the movie looks like. It preaches against one wearing the attire of a Rev. Father and doing something else underneath.”
On how she spices up her marriage, she said “Well, I don’t want to talk about my husband. But everybody knows my husband is very cute. Don’t let him take the shine off the interview.”
On the kind of role she will not play now, he words, “I think now it’s one that flaunts nudity. Any form of nudity.”
“He will never give me that consent. My husband is an Ishan man. Yes, he wouldn’t like that kind of thing. But I have to be very careful with everything I do now because I have kids. I have to live right for them. Do everything within my comfort zone to maintain a clean slate. Now, I have stopped doing romance roles, I do more of comedy. I think I have enough and lots of romance movies.”
From the minute we started dating, I stopped taking body contact or body touching roles. I have to move to the next level.”
