Gloria who was speaking to TV Africa’s Nikki Samonas in the wake of the sudden demise of the actor, Mac Jordan Amartey added that movie makers and producers should involve the veteran actors when assigning certain roles.
“Most of our veterans wish they are called back on set, they miss being on set and in front of the camera…You know most of them do admire we the young ones who are emerging… They wish they can act and have something to do with us but they not called. Instead, what do we see, we see people who are made-up to play the roles the veterans can play”
