Veteran actor, Sunny McDon W, has been in the Nigerian movie industry for over three decades and has played several roles in the course of his career. However, in the early stage of his career, he was known to feature mostly in movies that bordered on voodoo, a part he played well. Soon enough he carved a niche for himself playing such roles.
While some people might believe that he is diabolical, the ace actor was quick to emphasise that he is a born-again Christian.
“I am not diabolical, I’m a born-again Christian. I was born a Christian at Assemblies of God’s church. As a child, I was a bit radical and I pulled some pranks when I was in school and all that experience has helped me define my vision because experience helps you in anything you do. Unfortunately, I was being typecast as such a person in the early stage of my career because the jobs were few. The harvest was also few so if you say no, it would be to your own detriment.
“It is better you stick with the roles they give you and establish yourself in that domain so that when you feel like you have reached your climax in that area, you can branch out. It would be well understood by people because they will admit that you actually established yourself in a space before taking on another challenge.”
