Veteran Nollywood actress cum evangelist Eucharia Anunobi in an interview with The sun opens up on her Christian life and how it affects the role she plays.
She also talked about the discrimination and challenges of being a born-again Christian in the movie industry.
She told The Sun she would accept any role given to her including the role of a prostitute.
The actress who got born again 19 years ago said, “While you are seeing me as a movie legend, all the years you have been seeing ‘act all the actable’. I am still acting because I have not left my talent.
This is my own definition of being born again. Born again means you have realised and discovered that you were living a life of sin, but now, you want to live a life that would please God.“
She further continued saying,
“As an evangelist, I will still accept scripts like Ashawo (Prostitute). If they give me the one of Ashawo, I will do. But then, I’m not going to smoke, because I don’t smoke in real life, and I’m not going to drink. I can simulate, for instance, like in drinking, but then, I might not wear clothes that will reveal parts of my body.
I can still act the role of an armed robber,” Eucharia, currently serving as an evangelist at a church in Egbeda, Lagos state said, recalling a movie she played with Patience Ozorkwo (aka Mama G), where they robbed a bank and fully armed with AK-47.“
Eucharia shot into limelight for her role in the movie series “Glamour Girls‘” in 1994 and has gone on to star in over 90 movies including “Abuja Connection” and “Letters to a Stranger“.
