     Nollywood actress, Princess Eunice Njoku has lamented the requests for sex for roles from movie directors, a reason she is still keeping low profile in the industry.
The actress who started acting in 2017 said many of her colleagues who started acting with her are now top stars in the industry because they offer sex to take roles in movies.
In her interview with LiveTimesNG, Eunice noted that Nollywood is not encouraging upcomers to thrive because of unworthy requests which deters many upcoming actors to showcase their talents.
The upcoming actress who hails from Enugu State said: "Nollywood is not encouraging the upcoming actors to thrive coupled with the fact that they are not paid and at times, you will need to pay to get roles and as a lady, if you can't pay, you must sleep with directors and producers to get roles.
"But for me, I am totally against this to have sex before I get roles in movies. That is why I'm still keeping low profile in the industry. I feel comfortable to work with directors that don't ask for sex and that is the reason I still remain upcomer in the industry".
Speaking further, Eunice revealed that she had always wanted to act from childhood. According to her, she loves to put up characters that are not hers to entertain people and this was what led her into acting.
On her sojourn in the industry, Eunice said: " I have worked with popular actors like Regina Daniels in an epic movie and Tonto Dikeh and many others. I had featured in Child of Heaven with Tonto Dikeh and Queen Nwokoyo. I was featured in Mask Affairs where I played lead role and my other movies were 'Dangerous Decision', 'City Adventures', 'My Sister Slept with my Husband', and many others.
"My dream is to rise to level of Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Kanayo O. Kanayo, Ben Obi and other host of popular actors. I'm planning to produce my own movie. The movie is a unique story that will be of great impact to viewers because it is a movie that will entertain and educate people but finance is the challenge presently to fund it", she revealed.
