Key points from Ramsey Nouah’s masterclass

Nigerian actor Ramsey Nouah is in Uganda to grace the iKon Awards happening at Kampala Serena Hotel. Today, he conducted a masterclass at Motiv earlier with Ugandan filmmakers on how to improve their careers.

Among the things that Ramsey Nouah discussed in this dialogue was that the performance and the character’s world is the tool casting directors use as a physical description of the cast.

He also advised young and upcoming actors to be driven by passion.

“The actor’s world is a creative process so if you are not passionate about your craft, you will mess up,” he said adding that women need to be empowered in film because they are passionately driven and have the ability to make things happen.

“We employ professionalism and experience not based on gender equality. The interaction between actors is their responsibility; as an actor, you should not have likes or dislikes. By default, an actor is not allowed to have a bias on what the set offers or not.”
