Why I Stopped Acting Unclad, Romantic Scenes – Mercy Johnson-Okojie

Nigerian actress, Mercy Johnson-Okojie reveals why she no longer act in unclad clothes or act in romantic scenes.

She disclosed this during a recent interview with Goldmyne TV at the premier of her directorial debut movie, Legend of Inikpi.

According to the actress, growing older means making better choices. She stated that as she ages, her sense of judgement heightens and she’s answerable to many people like her kids, husband, her mum.

In her words;

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.”
