Veteran Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe Damijo has announced his role in a forthcoming movie titled ‘Cold’ tying it to how much he has avoided his call to become a pastor.
Footage from ongoing principle photography went viral last week after cast members took part in the Partition challenge.
Speaking about his role in the movie ‘Cold,’ Richard Mofe Damijo tied his role to how much he has avoided his calling as a pastor, and also how he wasn’t sure if he had totally escaped the calling.
“There was a time when for every other day or week, somebody would tell me they had a dream where they saw me as a pastor. Having taught Sunday school for over 15 years it was not far-fetched.
“Besides every perceived Bad Boy is supposed to end up in full-time ministry right? So, what did I do? Run! I’ve avoided the pulpit with trepidation. But just like Jonah, I continue to end up somehow in the belly of the calling where I have played a pastor or reverend father more than anything else in my acting life. God does have an amazing sense of humor. I’m not even sure as I write this if I’ve fully escaped the CALL! Until date, I still frighten myself every time I’ve had to speak in a church because when I take the pulpit, the Holy Spirit takes over.
“And so once again I embark into a world of make-believe where I play yet another man of God. I invite you on this epic cinematic journey into the spirit realm!”
‘Cold’ is directed by Bakia T. Thomas and also stars prominent actors like Kanayo O. Kanayo, Pete Edochie, and Femi Branch.
