"I love language films" - Stan Nze talks about his biggest movie to date
"I love language, anything that is a language film would get my attention. I mean one of my biggest films is Rattlesnake, and it had a lot of languages, Igbo though."
Stan even cracked a joke, noting that people tease him a lot about his Yoruba and how he speaks it. However, he is working on improving it.
"People run away from sensitive movies, but we need to get comfortable talking about it" - Stan insists
The Nollywood actor further spoke about people getting comfortable enough to talk about sensitive issues.
He shared his thoughts after being asked about the need for Nollywood to start producing more sensitive films.
"People usually run away from sensitive movies because they don't know how the audience would take or receive them, but the truth is we would not run from them for much longer, people want to tell stories they can relate to, and people want to see their lives in films, people want to have people talk about their lives which could probably give them a window to discuss this sensitive issues."
"Imiela is the most challenging character I have ever had to play" - Stan Nze reveals
Legit.ng asked Stan which movie would he say has been the most challenging for him, and we were shocked when he picked his cable channel series ahead of the box-office blockbuster, Rattlesnake.
"People like to think my most challenging character was in Rattlesnake. Even though it was challenging, Imiela was a tougher ask because I had to play something I have never felt."
Stan also shared what his greatest motivation is as an actor.
"The fact that you want to see yourself win, the fact that you want people to see the great content that you make. The motivation to make any film is that you know that people's lives are going to be transformed when you know that people are going to watch this and learn something from it, that's one of my biggest motivations."
"Epic movies are stressful" - The Rattlesnake actor explains why he dislikes acting in native movies
"To be honest, epic movies are stressful. It is a lot of sunburns, a lot of fight sequences, but I would still do epic films, not just sure if I would be doing a lot of it."
"Taking it one day at a time": Stan talks about managing his businesses, acting and marriage
"We taking it one day at a time, we're learning. Nobody has it all figured out. I mean, I love God, and he loves me too. He gives me the wisdom to manage it all. I'm not going to say this is the ABC or XYZ. But every day, we wake up and pray for the wisdom to navigate both the things and those we don't have control over."
Stan then shared a short story about how he recently helped his wife to defuse an issue that could have escalated and become very public. He noted that he is naturally the type of person that always sues for peace.
Stan shares his marital experience and what has changed about him
"I'm more patient, I mean, I am here for the long haul I am not going anywhere. I am realizing daily that "we die here" there's no running away from any situation, things will arise to sort them out there and there."
Nze also revealed how his wife had affected his communication skills.
"I used to be a stone wall, I am that type of person that wants to sweep things under the carpet. But I am talking more now, I am more vulnerable, and I am more open to having a seat down and talking things over. When I am hurt, I would say it because I don't want to have anything bottled up. I have had times that I cried and said oh this thing is hard but we doing it. Luckily for me, I'm married to such a beautiful woman, she has such a good heart which makes it easy."
Stan also touched on the upcoming elections, noting that whoever emerges as the president should transform the country. While opposed to popular opinion, Stan stated that he foresees peaceful and successful elections
