Why I Stopped Acting Romantic Scenes – Mercy Johnson Okojie.
Mercy Johnson, famous Nigerian actress, has taken to social media to reveal whyshe has stopped performing romantic scenes.
She made this known through a recent interview with Goldmyne TV at her debut directorial film’s premier, Inikpi’s Legend. She made some choices in the past which she is not proud of, according to the soon-to-be mom of four.
Nevertheless, she noted that with age her sense of judgment has now increased She said she could no longer act unclad or do romantic scenes as she is now accountable to many people.
“When I do that, what would the younger girls do? When you grow past a certain level, you try to go ahead and do better. For me, you don’t need people to tell you what’s right or wrong. Age is telling on me. I’ve grown past that level, I’m answerable to too many people: my husband, my kids. I hate to embarrass them in any way. My daughter is growing. She gets hold of my phone sometimes, begins to google, and goes like, ‘Mum, my friends said…’ And they’re very inquisitive. I don’t think it’s (playing unclad scenes) something I want to do to make my kids question me in any way or have something in their mind that they want to ask and they can’t.”
