Veteran actress Onajite Dede reveals her dream role is playing a villain

    Published By:

    Having played almost every role except being a villain, veteran actress Onajite Dede sends out word for directors to cast her as a villain.

    She revealed this in an interview with Pulse, the actress who has had a very successful career so far when asked if she had a dream role answered that it was playing a villain.

    As an actor, I have been tweeting it; somebody cast me as a villain.

    “I would love to play an absolute nasty piece of work. Someone evil, not one-dimensional evil.”

    Going further to explain why she really wants to play this role Onajite Dede said, “Villains are more fun to play because you have to make that person sellable. You have to relate to them because nobody just wakes up one morning and goes, ‘Haha, I’m evil and I want to destroy things and destroy people.’ No, they have a story of how they got somewhere. There is a saying, ‘No child is born bad; they become bad. So that’s the thing for me—to play a character that is bad and given a story that hopefully shows how they have become bad, or even with what you’ve got to show that this is still a human being even though they are doing horrendous things, so that’s the attraction for me. Casting me as a villain who dances would be the culmination of all my dreams into one thing.”

    The thespian recently futured in ‘The House of Secrets’ by Niyi Akinmolayan where she played the role of Sarah, delivering a spectacular performance.
