“I played the role of China, the gateman, the chief security office. The role of that gateman get as e be. He takes charge of the entire thing in the surroundings of the house, including the people in the house too.” – said Odega.
Having played similar character in most movies, the actor said:
“Yes I have played that role in a lot of movies. It is not that I don’t play other roles. But I think the way I portray the role is the reason they keep coming. It is not challenging really, because I have been playing it for a while. It is like am really a gateman.”
“They don’t typecast me; I have not done the role of a gateman for a long time. Let’s say I started with that, and as time goes on they saw other potential in me and I got cast for other roles too. I have hardly done the role of a gateman say in about five to 10 years now.”
The actor also said that the role of a gateman was not the role that brought him into limelight.
“Welcome to South, back from South and Agony of South, were movies that started trending after seven years of release. Surprisingly, the part ‘Gerrara Here’ was not part of the script; I just had to spice the script up. It was after that, that I became ambassador for one of the top telecommunication company. And I also did several commercials for DSTV, followed by other endorsements.”
