Precious HLG:Have you always been an actor from the beginning?


Ore-Ofe Williams: (Smiles) I'd always wanted to be an actor since I was at Ijebu Ode Grammar School, the secondary school I attended. I founded the Drama Club in school then. What inspired that was that I saw Road Safety club, Rotary Club etc. I felt we needed a platform where we could perform. So we started THE JOGS DRAMA CLUB and took plays to other secondary schools like AGGS and OLAS. We were boys only. Those schools were girls only. Don't ask me why (smiles) 


Precious HLG: Alright sir (smiles). What inspires your films?
