Veteran Ghanaian actor, Fred Amugi, has disclosed being discriminated against in the Ghanaian movie industry.

He said some people thought he was too old for movie roles.

Due to his age, Mr Amugi told Graphic Showbiz in a recent interview that he was rejected for movie roles.

“I was once rejected because people thought I was too old. But they forgot that a family needs both children and older people to be complete. What we see on TV and in movies shows us how people live together. And in every community, people of all ages work together. So, I’m still active, still acting and still doing well,” he revealed.

Despite this discrimination, the 75-year-old actor had no plans of retiring for now.

He further disclosed his current movie projects.

“I’m still active in acting and have two new films coming out. I’ve just finished one called The Fisherman, which is a foreign style film made in Ghana. I’m still working on the second one, Yen Ara, extensively Yen Ara Asaase Ni. So expect great things!”

Fred Amugi also gave insights into how actors can improve themselves and remain relevant.

“When it comes to acting, I think the most important qualities are humility and discipline. These traits come from experiencing different aspects of life. We can learn from what happens around us and what brings good and bad things.

“By seeing how others have lived, we can learn to be humble and disciplined. Those who are, tend to have the best lives. Humility and discipline are key,” the veteran Ghanaian actor stated.
