Actor, Kunle Remi Talks About What Goes On Behind the Cameras During Intimate Scene Shoot
Nollywood actor, Kunle Remi appears to have burst the Burbles of fans who fantasize about intimate movie scenes. The actor while listing out what goes on in his head whenever he’s asked to get in into an intimate role with actresses said the particular moment is often more awkward than what viewers see in edited versions.
The movie star made this known on the recent episode of the African Time Podcast where he discussed how he handles intimate movie scenes.
He said, “People often say to me, ‘You are enjoying o. See how you kissed Sharon, my crush’. First, I get paid to do that (to kiss people’s crushes). Second, the crush is beautiful. Third, there were like 30 people in the room (while shooting the scene).”
Recounting an awkward kissing scene he was once involved in, the talented actor said, “I once shot a romantic scene with a sweet actress, and we already had good chemistry. But, after such a nice kiss, she received a phone call and said, ‘Hey baby, we are done’ (presumably to her boyfriend).
“I was not really expecting anything but (I felt) she should have given us a moment to appreciate the kiss. (To enact that scene), we mentally zoned out all the people that were in the room, and it was so nice.”
Born Oyekunle Opeyemi Oluwaremi in 18 October 1988, Kunle Remi got into acting in 2011 after winning Gulder Ultimate Show the previous year. He is best known for his roles in Tinsel, Family Forever and Falling — The 2015 movie that sparked relationship rumours between Remi and co-star, Adesua Etomi.
