I was privileged to be behind the scene of a lovely movie in still in the offing and I watched how this young man professionally delivers his services especially when he switches on his British accent – oh my... lol. I wasn’t the only on admiring but I made it a duty to be the first to shoot my shot at the Abuja based actor. Read below what he divulged. 

Sandra T. Adeyeye: How would you like to be introduced?

Samuel: I like to be known as Samuel mc blaq Akawo.

Sandra T. Adeyeye: Did you study theatre art?

Samuel: No I didn’t.

Sandra T. Adeyeye: How long have you been practicing?

Samuel: I have been practicing for about 15 years but 7 years professionally. 

Sandra T. Adeyeye: Do you do stage or screen productions? 

Samuel: I do both stage and screen.

Sandra T. Adeyeye: What's the difference and their challenges?

Samuel: In Screen, mistakes can easily be corrected by cut and join but in stage you have to be 100% or nothing. The challenges are just too many I can’t even begin to count. You can always find locations for screen, but stage requires a structure which is overtly scarce at present.

Sandra T. Adeyeye: If you could go back in time, is there anything you would do differently? (Do you regret being a thespian and would you change it if you could?)

Samuel I would want to go back to study theater art.

Samuel: Wizard of law
