Being Dark Didn’t Get Me Movie Roles – Mercy Johnson
The nollywood acctress said this while speaking to “Saturday Beats”, she revealed that movie producers didn’t pick her roles when she first started acting, stating that they would rather cast light skinned girls.
“It is very true that when I was starting out in the movie industry, it was difficult to get roles because of my complexion. I faced that a lot and I tell people that my success is just grace. Somebody once told me that I am too dark but that is where the grace and favour of God comes in.”
