Have you ever imagined sleeping in a coffin whiles you are still alive? Well, for an Kumawood actress, Emelia Brobbey, that remains her most difficult acting role ever. She said this in an interview with Abeiku Santana on UTV yesterday.
According to the actress cum producer, her acting experience of having to lie in a casket was a strenuous, tedious and was a very frightening moment in her career.Despite featuring in over one hundred (100) movies, taking a nap in a casket implies the person is dead in reality and that is no easy a role to play.
Emelia Brobbey also revealed that on the night of the movie shooting, she had a restless night to the extent that she consulted her Pastor to pray for her.
“I’ve slept in a coffin… It was tedious but I can say I had no choice because we wanted to make it look real and for the viewers to learn something from it,” she said, “I had a sleepless night because I know lying in a coffin means the person should die in reality. Some People think acting is all rosy but there are challenges… I need to pray. The script really needed that so I ought to do it.”
Emelia Brobbey, a young lady who quit teaching for acting had risen to become one of the most sought-after actresses in Ghana, especially in the’ Kumawood’ circles.
