Tell us a little bit about your self?
My full names are John Chukwudi Enuesike. I am from Ndokwa East LGA of Delta State Nigeria. A twin from a Catholic family of 5. God fearing, discipline, hardworking and a Psychologist. John Chukwudi is a Thespian, Nollywood Actor, Producer, Director and Writer. Simply put, am a film maker.
How long have you been acting?
I basically started from the stage in 1995, joined the Catholic Dramatic Society CDS in Warri Delta state, where after 3years became the Artistic Director and proceeded to study Acting and Film Productions with the Delta Joint Films Project DJFP. Thence began my career professionally in 1999 with "My Joseph" as my first movie and Cotonu visa" where I played along side Johnbull (Junior Jagua) and Frances Edega. Immediately after that, I produced my first movie "Passion of Saint Monica" a Catholic movie directed by Peter st Paul.
We understand that you are also skilled in movie directing as well, please can you tell us how you started and give us a few names of movies you have been involved in so far?
I started directing in 2010 with a TV Drama series "The leaf Eater" produced by ABN. Word of Life Bible Church. "Just once"a campus movie, "The Secret" and just concluded indigenous comedy movie "Mr. Billy" produced by Miah Uwem.
What do you think about the new generation actors compared to the former?
I see the new crop of Actors as the future of Nollywood, while those you regard as former are the foundation on which Nollywood stands. Thus, its like father and son. "The young shall grow" so they say, and every father prays that their children should be better than them..that is to say the future of Nollywood ( new generation Actors ) is brighter still with the support of the Legends of Nollywood.
What are the challenges you're facing as an actor?
Well, challenges are part of life and propelling factor to greatness. So as an Actor challenge of getting a good job, the opportunity to show what you are made of is one...Been appreciated is another. Major characters or prominent roles are always giving to "big names" relegating the Younger Actors to back bench. Though some producers and directors love promoting and working with young talented Actors. But in general I must say, it’s been God.
What can new actors do before embarking on a mission to fame?
Know what you want; learn what you want, be the best at what you want... Finally and most importantly, always pray for what you want and be ready for the opportunity when it comes knocking.
ANY LAST WORDS FOR YOUR FRIENDS AND FANS?
Thanks for your support, love and prayers. You've all been my motivators and strength. Expect the best from me and I promise never to disappoint you. God bless you all, my family, my Papa's in the Lord, friends, relatives, and most importantly, my Fans I love you all.
