One of the things an actor must watch out for in the course of their career is being typecasted to a particular role. Like Kanayo O. Kanayo came to be associated with rituals and Bandele Olayinka (aka Iya Gbonkan) came to be known for witchcraft/wickedness.
But are all typecasting bad? What are the effects of typecasting on an actor’s career? Sharon Ooja, Candice Modiselle and Catherine Kamau-Karanja talk about “The Typecast Effect” in episode four of Never Late | African Time.
Never Late | African Time is an African-focused podcast that talks about all things African stories, celebrates African content and how the continent is the next frontier. It features stories from actors, content creators and filmmakers across Africa.
