I am an Actress not a Prostitute —Maria Francis

By  | 

Some weeks ago nude pictures of a nollywood upcoming
actresses Peace Maria Francis hit the Internet and has since attracted criticism from all angles with some labeling her ” prostitute” The beautiful actress has however
defended their act, saying it was all
about the profession. In an exclusive interview with Nollywood Insider ,Peace, who hails from
Akwa Ibom state appealed to her fans and movie enthusiasts
“Show me love and appreciation,
and not condemnation. This is
about my profession and I want
to express myself better as it
should be done, in my acting
career.”“My manager got it for
me. He told me about the job and
I agreed to take part in it. I wasn’t
forced to do it.
It is all because I wanted to use it
to tell the real story of what
happened back then in our
country, Nigeria. It is also in a bid
to tell our younger ones how we
started back then, and the only
way to do that, is to express it in
a professional manner. That is
what I am in the industry to do;
tell people the real story and
interpret such roles very well, for
their better understanding and
enjoyment.”” As a professional
actor I do take risk. For I take
enormous pride when people call
me an actor. This means and
shows how serious I take my job.
It is a sign of the sacrifice and
effort I put in it to make my acts
have some sense of reality, while
sending good messages to our
people, “ She continued
“I am a Christian, for crying out
loud. I fear God and worship him
as best as I can. But would that
stop me from doing my job? I
think that shouldn’t.Some ask how
much I was paid to expose my
body like that. Others want to
know ask why I did it. They say I am desperate and a paid prostitute.
All I want them to know is that I
am just a good actor, who takes
her job with the seriousness it
deserves. I only played the
character given to me and
interpret the role well. I’m not
here for fame or money. I really
love my job. I do it professionally.
I went into acting because I love
it. That’s the only thing I do that
gives me joy. I am here to make a
difference. It’s about my passion.”
She summed it up, saying,
“Let the world know that it is not
easy for anyone to come out and
change his or her identity, in
order to make films look real. The
world should be more supportive
than criticising us.
They always want Nollywood to
give them good movies but if
there are no good actors, there
would be no good movie. Why are
Nigerians not watching Nollywood
movies again and prefer Mexican
and Hollywood films? Is it not
because they are tired of what we
act and produce? Yes. They feel
we are lacking behind. This is
what we are trying to correct and
save our dying film industry.
Here, I promise my fans, that I
would not disappoint them. It is
not about S*X but good acting.”
