Actor and Big Brother Africa runner-up Tayo Faniran has outlined the requirements for a film script and producer before he will accept an acting part.
The former reality star revealed there are specific qualities he looks out for in a movie script in a recent interview with Hip TV.
Faniran claimed that the most crucial aspect he considers is his part in the movie.
“My positioning in the story is the first thing I look out for when I’m giving a script,” he remarked. I consider myself a leading man.
“I am qualified to play the starring role. Aside from that, I simply love to excel at all I do. I’m trying to find a role that will allow me to show off my abilities. And almost always, it’s either the main character or a supporting character who plays the main role.
“I don’t want to be stereotyped, so that is the second thing I watch out for. Maybe every story that is written for a playboy, loverboy, evil guy, or something similar doesn’t appeal to me. I enjoy seeking out diversity because it gives me the opportunity to demonstrate my adaptability.
“Finally, I keep an eye out for the film’s creators as well. the film’s quality. Will it finally burn out? Will anyone actually see it? Will it advance my career in any way? I then think about the finances. Does investing my time pay off? Being a businessman, I have other responsibilities. I just make it heavier. It should be worthwhile of my time even if it has nothing to do with money.
According to 460play, Tayo Faniran made his big-screen debut in the first African-produced original on Amazon Prime Video, “Gangs Of Lagos,” which debuted in April.
In Isale Eko, he portrayed Ninalowo, also known as Nino, a renowned yet sympathetic gang leader.
