Ghanaian actor, James Gardiner has shared a story of what motivated him to start acting.

While some people go into acting for fame and money, James was in for something different.

He told Abeiku Santana on ‘Atuu’ aired on UTV that the opportunity to kiss women in movies motivated him to start acting.

“I met a fine half-caste lady at the audition and during the audition, I was made to understand that I had to play a romance scene. So I asked the director, do I have to kiss her, and he said yes. Suddenly I told myself that I have to get on board because I’m going to have the opportunity to kiss women,” he stated.

James Gardiner further stated: “Right there I told myself that, I would be a fool if I don’t do this job.”

The award-winning actor has been featured in a lot of movies in Ghana and Nigeria.
