Chris Attoh, in his bid to prove to Ghanaians that he is opened to any movie role thrown at him, either from the English or local movie industries, has said he will not mind kissing actress Rose Mensah, popularly known as Kyeiwaa.
The actor has over the years been accused of dealing solely with producer and director Shirley Frimpong-Manso and that he is so choosy he will not feature in any other production unless it is from the stables of Sparrow Production, owned by Shirley.
But speaking in an interview with Myjoyonline.com after a press preview of the movie ‘Be My Guest’, from Wide Angle Entertainment, in Accra, Chris denied the ‘Shirley’s actor tag’.
He stated that Sparrow Production “are a production team I can confidently put my career in their hands and not worry about [anything].”
Chris Attoh, who has seen his fame soar over the years was, however, quick to state that “You cannot be a successful actor and limit yourself to a production house or to even certain kinds of scripts … every actor will have to venture out once.”
He is particularly noted for his roles in renowned productions such as ‘Tinsel’, ‘Six Hours to Christmas’, ‘Life and Living It’, ‘Scorned’, and ‘Sinking Sands’.
Asked whether he would gladly accept a role in a local movie- since he is now on a mission to widen his net- Chris said he would only feature in a local movie “if the story is great.
The story has to be good, the production house has to be good so together you know you are doing great work.”
Asked if he would kiss actress Kyeiwaa, he said, “Why not?
“If you are asked to kiss Kyeiwaa in a movie would you do it? If it [kiss] sells the story I will happily do it as an actor.”
Born Christopher Attoh, Chris started out as a radio presenter, then became a TV presenter, an actor and now a movie director.
In his quest to up his game, he studied at the New York Film Academy in 2009 to study the rudiments of film.
To his credit, Chris has shot a short film ‘Devoted’ in New York which features an Indian cast.
He promised that Ghanaians would see more productions from him this year.
