Marriage has cost me a lot — Beverly Afaglo
Ghanaian actress, Beverly Afaglo Baah has said, marriage has caused her a lot in terms of roles in the movie Industry.
According to The Girls Connection actress, producers didn’t consider it right for a married woman to play certain roles and that slowed her down.
“Being married definitely slowed me down because some of the directors told me they couldn’t cast me for certain roles which I played previously because I’m a wife. I love that they give me such respect but as an actress, it is my duty to act irrespective of my marital status; so if I can perfectly play a role, I don’t see the reason why I should not be given the chance,” she said in an interview with Graphic Showbiz.
Beverly disclosed that while dealing with that issue, she also had to deal with rejecting productions that required her services late into the night because of her little children.
“It’s not easy at all, especially when I started having babies and had to be with them all the time; yet, a director wants you on set in the evening and you are torn between your family and your work which is also fetching you money.
“Sometimes, I have no choice than to sacrifice my work for my husband and children because they are my priority but now, I’m happy to say that the situation is much better since the children are older so I’m back to working full time,” she added.
