My Mum Pays N250 for Me to Act as a Child on NTA- Actor Roxy Antak


Striking Nollywood act, Edem Roxy Antak has disclosed that as a child, his mum usually paid N250 to someone on NTA to give me a roll on popular TV story series ‘Tales By Moonlight’.

Antak, who featured as Tunde, Shan George’s son in her recently privately screened movie “Grey Shadows”, said “I don’t know if that was wrong them, but my mum just felt I had the ability to act and in order to nurture the talent, she not only nudged me to act, but actually paid my way through to facilitate me getting a role.”

The soft-spoken thespian, who studied Mathematics and Economics at the University of Benin, added “but it was worth the experience, because those days laid the foundation for what I am doing today.

Though Roxy got into Nollywood a few years ago, he’s enjoyed the privilege of featuring alongside industry greats. His role as Jonny the chef in Nollywood blockbuster, ‘The Women’, where he acted as Kate Henshaw’s lover shot him into limelight.
