Nollywood actor, Iyke Adiele, has called on upcoming actors to build a character to enable them manage fame.

Speaking to Daily Trust, Iyke said "The first thing to build as an upcoming actor is a character  because when the roles start coming in, if you don’t have a character yet, you might not be able to manage fame."

He added that it is important to stay focus when pursuing a career in acting because pursuing a career in acting is a lifetime thing  and a constant battle "It is not always going to be rosy, so you have to tell yourself I want to do this, this is what I want."

Iyke who was nominated for Best actor in Nigeria Movie Award for the character ‘Sam’ he played in the movie ‘Broken’ said that " Great actors must have a flexible and expressive voice and body that connects to highly developed imagination."

Iyke said he is currently working on a project that he expects will be a blockbuster and get movie lovers excited.

He had starred in Diary of a triplet, Labour room, Broken among others.
