I Started Acting To Pay For My GCE Exam – Ramsey Nouah


Nollywood actor, Ramsey Nouah has disclosed his reasons for venturing into acting.

Speaking during a recent interview with PUNCH, Nouah revealed he always wanted to be a pilot or an aeronautic engineer, adding that he was obsessed with planes, machines and gadgets that flew.

When asked about how his acting career started he said: “I needed money to take my GCE external examination and I just couldn’t get it, no matter where I went

“So, I remembered that my friend had told me repeatedly that I had a gift in acting but I had never taken it seriously.

“When I needed money desperately to pay for my exams, I decided to give it a try and source some money from it.

“In 1990, I had a cameo role and in 1991, I had a role in the series, Mega Fortunes, which aired in 1993 and lasted for just a year.

“After that came the advent of home videos and it’s been a roller-coaster ride since then.

“I really just went into acting because I needed the money and not because I thought I could act. Over time, I realised that I had a strong passion for acting and thought to myself that acting could just have been my calling.”

The actor further revealed that his mother never liked the idea of him acting but she eventually was happy with the accolades and positive reactions from people.

Speaking about his first pay, Nouah said: “We had been filming Mega Fortunes and we didn’t get paid till about the eighth month when I finally got N1,100 (about N80 per episode).
