Nollywood actor, Damilola Ogunsin, popularly known as ‘Gold Fish’ has recounted how a movie director once talked down at him saying he could not be an actor because he is an albino.

Arsenalinterest reports that the thespian narrated the encounter in a recent interview with Hip TV, revealing some of his major challenges in the movie industry.

According to him, the movie director whose name was withheld told him that the movie industry is not a place for albinos.

He added that the journey in Nollywood has not been easy, notwithstanding he is consistently trying to step out of the stereotype of his complexion.

Ogunsin said, “When I was coming into Nollywood, I had a major director who I will not mention his name. He looked at me and said, ‘Why do you want to be an actor? How many albinos do you find as actors? It’s not a place for you to be.

“I have been doing theatre since primary school. I have been in the theatre group in my primary school, secondary school, my church, in my polytechnic in Ibadan, in University of Lagos, and everywhere.

“It has been six glorious years post-banking. And has it been easy? No. But what I try to do consistently, is to step out of the stereotype. I’m not trying to be known as the albino actor. I’m the actor who is an albino. That’s a different thing.”
