Kunle Remi is definately living the dream as a young Nigerian actor.
The handsome actor has shared some of the challenges, as well as, the pleasures of acting in romantic scenes.
While recounting how he deals with romantic scenes while acting on the ‘African Time Podcast’, Kunle revealed that he is living the dreams of other men because some fans tell him to his face.
People often say to me, ‘You are enjoying o. See how you kissed Sharon, my crush’. First, I get paid to do that (to kiss people’s crushes). Second, the crush is beautiful. Third, there were like 30 people in the room (while shooting the scene).
I once shot a romantic scene with a sweet actress, and we already had good chemistry. But, after such a nice kiss, she received a phone call and said, ‘Hey baby, we are done’ (presumably to her boyfriend).
I was not really expecting anything but (I felt) she should have given us a moment to appreciate the kiss. (To enact that scene), we mentally zoned out all the people that were in the room, and it was so nice.
When asked what he would consider before acting a sex scene, Kunle said; I will do it as long as it is important to the story. I won’t just do anything sexual (for the sake of it). First, I have to ask, ‘Why do they need to have sex’? I then try to see if there is any way we can portray the scene without including sexual content? (However), I will do it if sex is important to the story.
