Quite a number of veteran actors and film enthusiasts including actress Portia Asare Boateng have over the years expressed disappointment in the incessant use of young actors to play roles meant for the elderly caused the collapse of Kumawood Films.

For critics of this practice, making up a younger actor to play an elderly role is inappropriate as they argue that older actors possess certain physiological traits necessary for the execution of the role.

But for Ruthy, a showbiz critic, there’s nothing wrong with Lilwin playing the role of the elderly in movies as long as he does it best, therefore, Portia Asare Boateng has no case!

According to Ruthy, Lilwin’s ability to execute elderly roles makes him a complete actor as the nature of the job allows for versatility as in the case of the actors switching to different characters.

Liwin further stated that, “once you play the role well, there is nothing wrong with that. The challenge is when you cannot interpret the role the best way you should.”

He told host, Oforiwa, that due to how keen he is about his profession, he has the finest makeup products bought from the US which he gives to makeup artists on set for them to use to change his looks to the elderly.
