Gloria Sarfo has shared a challenge she encountered in her acting career.

The actress revealed on TV3’s Ladies Circle that some movie producers sidelined her.

According to her, these producers thought she was not fluent in English because of the ‘Efiewura’ series roles she played.

“Before I used to get worried, I use to talk a lot. Because of the Efiewura tag, people thought I couldn’t even express myself in the English Language so everything was about I am a local actress because of Efiewura.

 “I was actually told that because of my active roles in local series, I have a least chance to be given a role as a wealthy man’s daughter in any glamour movie. Like, are we that shallow?

“But thankfully, AMVCA, it was speaking Twi that got me there. Speaking twi is my identity, this is who I am. Thanks to Shirley Frimpong Manso, she knows I do Efiewura but she was like, ‘Gloria, do it your own way, blend the dialogue with the twi language if you are comfortable with it. Do your own thing’. I did that and it worked and with God, it became successful,” she said.

However, Gloria stated that she was not bothered being tagged as a local actress but the negativity attached made her uncomfortable.

“I play lead roles in movies that when the posters come out, my face will not be on it and the only reason I have been told is because, I don’t appeal to the target audience. And I’m like, ‘so you knew and you still brought me on to do what exactly’?” Gloria Sarfo added.
