Movie director said I couldn’t be actor because I’m albino – Damilola Ogunsin

Damilola Ogunsin, a Nollywood actor, has said that a film director once informed him that he couldn’t be an actor because he is albino.

In a recent interview with Hip TV, Damilola Ogunsin detailed some of his key problems in the film industry.

According to Ogunsin,

“When I was coming into Nollywood, I had a major director who I will not mention his name. He looked at me and said, ‘Why do you want to be an actor? How many albinos do you find as actors? It’s not a place for you to be.’

“I have been doing theatre since primary school. I have been in the theatre group in my primary school, secondary school, my church, in my polytechnic in Ibadan, in University of Lagos, and everywhere.”

The ‘Gold Fish,’ as he is affectionately known, stated that he has always been passionate about theatre, emphasizing that he does not believe his “beautiful skin” would prevent him from accomplishing his goals.

He stated that his desire to become an actor led him to resign from his banking job and join Nollywood.

According to Ogunsin,

“It has been six glorious years post-banking. And has it been easy? No. But what I try to do consistently, is to step out of the stereotype. I’m not trying to be known as the albino actor. I’m the actor who is an albino. That’s a different thing.”
