Entertainment: Akin Lewis-Training Very Important For Actors

At a time when some people believe that actors are ‘born’, not ‘made’, Lewis insisted that for an actor to be truly successful, such a person must be well trained.

He said, “I can boldly say that there is no alternative to training for any actor who wants to be successful. Even if you have the talent; it is raw and has to be refined. In every other profession, training is necessary, so what makes the arts different in that regard.

I am highly trained. I graduated with a First Class in Dramatic Arts and I also have a Master’s degree in the same course. I was privileged to have been trained by professors and other great professionals.”

On the toughest role he has taken on in the course of his career, the Heroes and Zeroes actor said, “I wouldn’t really consider any particular role to be the toughest role that I’ve played. I love challenges and roles that task me. Some of the notable roles I’ve played are in movies such as Were Alaso, Madam Dearest and Borokini, among others.

“I have been in the industry for 46 years. I have been on the mountain top and it has been awesome. I have also been in the valley. I have been happy and I have been sad. I know the secret of plenty and I know the secret of small. That’s just the way life is.
