Yul Edochie: lots of actresses look forward to kissing me


Son of veteran actor Pete Edochie is one actor who has carved a niche for himself in the movie industry without shinning with the glory of his father.

One can say he is one of the most sorts after actor in the industry with a lot of hit movies he has featured in. 

For upcoming actors who end up acting with establish actors, there is always a sort of excitement and some might tend to be disappointed if their excitement turns to a disappointment.

In a recent interview, the actor disclosed that he has reduced the rate of his romance and kissing scenes in movies which are roles he was often known for.

Spilling more, the actor said revealed that throughout his acting career he realized that some actress look forward in kissing him on set, which he feels isn't professional.

Choi, that's someone's husband o! I guess that's the reason the actor decided to limit his kissing and romance scenes, especially after he had an encounter with an actress whose name was withheld.

According to the actor, the lady who was looking forward to kissing him in the movie was disappointed when he told the director he wouldn't be doing the kissing scene but rather play the lover boy role without kissing.

The said lady allegedly got pissed and flared up, and was yelling and protesting on him not been fair to have cut off the kissing scene. Can you relate to the lady's disappointment? LOL

In his words: 'I know lots of actresses look forward to kissing me on set. This particular one, saw the script and was jumping that she was going to kiss 'Yul Edochie', but I was tired of the kissing thing and asked the director to allow me do it without the 'kissing'. When the actress heard it, she was like 'I have kissed so….so and so person', but won't do the same to her. She flared up. It was quite funny and annoying too. I have never looked forward to going to kiss someone in a film. It is not professional. Those who undergo the real training as an actor can't sit at home and keep looking forward to kissing in movies.'
