Ghanaian movie producer, director and actor, Prince David Osei, has expressed his concern about how acting has turned into regarding how unqualified as even treated as actors.

The actor who seemed a little disturbed about how the career has been explained mentioned in an interview with Dr Cann on Happy FM that in our part of the country the career has been reduced people who are school dropouts.

“The sad thing is that most people think acting is a job for school drop-outs or people who have nothing to do but it is a serious business,” he made known this concern when he was interviewed on Happy FM’s Ayekoo After-Drive.

Prince David corrected that, “Acting is a serious job that we’re doing and this job of acting has opened a lot of doors for us internationally and globally, and it has helped us to meet certain people that we would never even have gotten the chance to meet on a normal day.”

“When I see people come in and say they want to act but they don’t even have any educational background and they’re not trained for what they say they want to do, I feel it’s an insult. Acting is just like every other profession such as a doctor or lawyer”, he added.

The famed actor posited that it hurts his soul to see unqualified or untrained people get in front of the camera because they have the passion for it or have a nice body and good looks that suits the role of the movie in question.

According to him, there are some skills and techniques that one needs to learn in order to become an actor, therefore, no matter how much one believes in themselves, they still need training and they cannot become an actor just because they think they have certain traits that qualify them.

“You need the training, you need to go through the process and you need to take it personal just like someone takes their job that requires them to go to the office every morning personal”, Prince David Osei further advised.
