Popular and legendary actor and TV presenter, Akwasi Boadi also known as Akrobeto, has shared his experience with acting a romantic scene during his early days in the movie industry.
He stated that, it could have been a disgrace for him if the crew members had seen the ‘situation’. To avoid any embarrassment, he deliberately got stuck in a pool where the scene was shot till his ‘pen drive’ cooled down before coming out.
Mr. Boadi said, “When I first entered the movie industry, it was Miracle Films who cast me and due to the luxury at his expense, he asked me to be in a swimming pool with some ladies, seeing the ladies in their bikini, in fact, I got worried.
“I got stranded in the pool after the Director said cut because I had erected and it would have been a disgrace for me if I had left the water immediately. I deliberately bathed in the water till I lost erection,” he added.
Akrobeto, shared this experience during his Friday Night show ‘The Real News’ on United Television. He however indicated he no longer gets turned on since he is now used to the movie industry, adding that controlling himself on set has become an easy task for him now.
“It’s true that we are acting but we are human. As a man, when you get caught up in something like that you can’t control but when you do it regularly you get used to it. Now I no longer get an erection when acting even when I’m naked on a movie set,” he said.
The experienced actor said this in relations to a news that broke out over the week when his colleague actor in the movie industry, Salinko, revealed how he got erected when acting a romantic scene with actress Vivian Jill Lawrence.
