Actor, Adjetey Annan, has revealed that he once accepted a gay role in his early career stages. The “Pusher” actor stated on Showbiz A-Z on Joy FM that he did not turn down a gay role in the ‘Run for your wife’ movie.
“This is a story that has gone through the process. This is a movie that somebody thought it was a nice subject of the day and why not just through into the market, it would draw the audience coming in.
So it was a two different thing in one, somebody was taking advantage of a scenario just to make money and the other it was well structured,” he added.
Meanwhile, the actor also revealed that he had earlier on rejected another offer to play a gay role. His argument was that the said role had no purpose and was only to cause controversy and a public stare – a situation he was not prepared to handle as a young actor.
The revelation by Adjetey Annan follows the controversial anti-LGBTQ bill which has generated debate across the country.
