One of the disadvantages of being an actor is being associated with a character even though you were just acting. Nigerian actor Mike Ezuruonye recently explained how frustrating this can be.

“People believe that I was born and raised in the eastern part of the country. Because of some of the roles I have played in the past, some people also think that I am mean and that I beat women. However, people now understand that it was just about me interpreting roles.
I am sure that people who think that don’t know me and have never met me. Anybody who has worked with me knows that I relate equally with everybody, whatever their status. I play and joke a lot. People shouldn’t judge me by the characters they have seen me play in movies.
They think that because of some characters they have seen me play. Nothing could be farther from the truth,” he told Punch.
