Actor and skit maker, Nosa Rex, says though he has never regretted playing any role, he does not see himself acting as a gay person.
In an interview with Sunday Scoop, he said, “I have never regretted playing any role. I am an actor and I am supposed to be able to interpret any character I am given. However, I don’t think I can ever act as a gay person. That is a character I don’t really like to play. It will be hard for me trying to be gay when I am not. Aside from that, I don’t think I have played any role I regret playing. In the course of my career, it has been from one challenging role to the other.”
Rex, who lost his father, Friday Uzamere, earlier in the year, noted that the experience was a big blow for him. He said, “The loss of my father is the biggest challenge I am having right now. It was a big blow for me. My father was my pillar. He was a supporter, best friend, and someone I always relied on. He had me when he was very young, so we had a close relationship. It has not been easy, and I don’t even know how to explain it. He was a good man and he left behind a good legacy. He was loved by the people. He taught me about patience, never to look down on anyone, never to underestimate what I have and to always believe in myself. He never allowed me to say any negative thing about myself. His best words were, ‘It is well’. I will never forget him in a hurry because I am a reflection of him.”
Speaking on the lessons fatherhood has taught him, Rex said, “I (now) see life differently. Fatherhood has taught me to be patient and more understanding. I talk less now. I try to apply wisdom in everything I do. If one doesn’t apply wisdom, one cannot run a family peacefully and successfully.”
