Nollywood actor Jim Iyke in an interview with Pulseng, discussed his experience in the movie industry.
According to him, he has featured on an possible roles except of being a gay and never plan on shooting such role in future.
“I have never played a gay role and I have no desire of playing anything like that. I have had a long career, a lot of movies, I have pretty much stretched everything that there is.
“But is there a role out there [that I haven’t played]? I can’t think of any off the top of my head.”
Speaking on, the actor also pointed out his role model in acting;
“It’s a man with the depth of Denzel Washington. Denzel is not just an actor, that’s how I don’t want to be perceived as well.
“That’s why I’m always going off and on to go educate myself some more, elevate my mind some more, invest in things that are outside the confines, fail in many more things and succeed as well as I go.”
He then said he wouldn’t like to be recognized as just an actor.
“I don’t want anyone to label me a Nollywood actor. I want to be a business man, I want to be a philanthropist, I want to help people in my lifetime, leave my signature in the stamps of time.
I want people to wake up and say ‘hey, if you didn’t do this, this wouldn’t haven’t happened. And I want to say the same of people.”
