In a candid interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, Nollywood actor Zack Orji recounted his experiences and challenges in the film industry. The interview, shared on Instagram on Thursday, delved into the highs and lows of his career, including the impact of his famous role in the 1996 film *Silent Night*.

Orji, renowned for his portrayal of Black Arrow in *Silent Night*, revealed that the role catapulted him to fame but came with significant drawbacks. "There was a time I took a hiatus from acting when people were casting me in that mold of bad boy, bad boy, and it began to affect my psyche," he explained. The constant typecasting took a toll on his mental health, prompting him to step back from the industry.

During the interview, Orji also opened up for the first time about his personal life, including his divorce from popular actress Anne Njemanze. "I stayed out of marriage after the first one collapsed. I stayed out for like 12 years before I remarried," he shared, highlighting the difficulties he faced in his personal life and his decision to remain single for over a decade before finding love again.

Orji's revelations provide a deeper insight into the struggles behind the scenes of Nollywood and the personal battles faced by its stars. His story underscores the pressures of typecasting in the film industry and the impact it can have on an actor's mental well-being and personal life.
