Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson-Okojie has revealed that she can never take up a romantic role in movies anymore.

She spoke on GoldMynetv recently during an interview on her new movie, “The Legend Of Inikpi.”

Johnson-Okojie said age is telling on her and that it was better to leave such romantic roles to younger girls in movies.

When asked: “Are you open to playing roles that require getting Romantic with another actor on set?”

She replied: “Age is telling on me, I just calculated that if I had to do that, what will the younger girls do? When you go past a certain level, you try to go above that level to do better.

“You don’t need people to tell you what is right or wrong. For me, I just felt I have gone past that level, I am answerable to many people, my husband, my kids; my daughter’s getting older and she gets hold of my phone, she begins to google such.

“Kids are very inquisitive and I don’t want them to question me in any way or have something in their mind. I don’t think I want to do that.

“My sense of maturing and judgment is better now and I now know better; the errors I have made in the past are things that I would not do now, some of the choices I have made in the past are things I would not do now.”

Kudos to you for taken a wise decision as a married woman. You have many roles you can play and still make the waves as a veteran actress. Notting do you mama.
