“How I handled producer that tried to exploit me for movie role” – Actress, Doris Ifeka reveals

Doris Ifeka, a Nollywood actress, has disclosed how she avoided being exploited by a director in the early days of her playing career.

The screen diva stated that a filmmaker, whose identity she did not reveal, wanted to collaborate with her, but he insisted on being paid first before handing her the job.

Ifeka stated that she told him openly that she did not have any money at the time, and that despite his efforts, she maintained her stance, emphasizing that she was fine if he did not choose her only on the basis of money.

According to the pretty actress, her insistence forced the producer to change his mind and he later called her to take up the role without asking her to pay.

She stated this during an interview while arguing that though intimacy between actresses and filmmakers is not prohibited, it should be consensual, not forced.

In her words;

“As an actress, it is almost certain that one would experience sexual harassment, because some producers would want to sleep with one before giving one any jobs. So, yes, I have experienced it.

“I don’t have a problem with a producer liking an actress. If the feeling is mutual, no problem. What I have an issue with is a producer saying he must sleep with an actress before working with her.

“I recall being in such a situation but I won’t mention the name of the person involved. I was still coming up in the industry then. A particular producer wanted us to work together, and he told me to pay him in exchange for a role.

“The money the person was demanding for was not much, but I told him I did not have the money at that time. I also told him that if he did not want to work with me until I paid him, I was fine with that. I insisted, and he eventually called me back to play the role, without paying.”
