James Gardiner, born James Timothy Gardiner has revealed in an exclusive interview that he still takes part in auditions to be selected for a movie role.
Explaining his reason on ‘Showbiz Agenda’ with Sammy Flex, the Zylofon signee stated that, “I wish I could always get a huge platform to showcase what i have because that is what we are all working at. In as much as you need to have the home fans secured you need to make sure you win “away matches” as well and that’s what gets you the titles.
I have done a lot of movies outside Ghana but I want to go beyond Africa and for the look of things I am hungry and want more. It’s not the numbers you do that determine you will go far or that makes you feel you are going far you don’t even necessarily have to go through training to be able to know how to act. We all go for auditions hence, if you feel you are too big and wont go for auditions that is your own “wahala”. We’ve gone for auditions, we’ve stepped on the floor, rolled left right center just to get there.”
He further explained that it is all about your mindset and depends on the production house it is. The production house has to be one he feels his brand sits well with.
James Gardiner remains one of Ghana’s fine actors. He has acted in quite a number of Ghanaian movies and has often been described as an actor with good charisma.
