“Acting is not a job for school dropout and failures”- Prince David Osei

Prince David Osei, a Ghanaian film producer, director, and actor, has expressed his dissatisfaction with the state of the acting industry, particularly with regard to how unqualified people are treated as actors.

In an interview with Dr Cann on Happy FM, the actor, who appeared to be a little disturbed by the way the career has been explained, stated that in our part of the country, the career has been reduced to 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.

When unqualified or untrained people get in front of the camera because they have a passion for it or because they have a nice body and good looks that suit the role of the movie in question, the famed actor says it hurts his soul.

According to him, there are certain skills and techniques that one must learn in order to become an actor; as a result, no matter how much one believes in themselves, they still require training and cannot become an actor simply because they believe they possess certain characteristics that qualify them.
