Nollywood star, Charles Inojie has indeed pitched a tent for himself in the make-believe world, thus needs no further introduction.

The Edo-State born actor who doubles as a director walked down the aisle few years ago with his beautiful wife, confessed that since he took that huge step into marriage his life hasn't remained the same.

"Being married has added all round value to my life. My wife is my number one critic and she makes it a point of duty to see all my movies as soon as they are released. No doubt I'm a better person now than I ever was."

The comic actor has also finalised plans to produce his first movies after years of directing and acting. "Yes, I am going to try my hands on producing from early next year. So your information is very correct, but we are keeping the details very close to our hearts just yet. Discussions have reached top gear with potential sponsors and I do not want to preempt anything at the moment. Let me assure my fans however, that they are in for a great experience.

Everyone knows me hitherto as the writer/movie director, but in the last four years or so, I embarked on a deliberate journey to expose the actor side of me to my teeming fans. Even though I had made minor appearances in some movies in the past, not many people knew that I was actually a lead role material. So I got to that point in my career when I could no longer continue to suppress my acting talents. I had to take the bull by the horn by going all out in front of the camera as a full-fledged actor, and believe me, the experience has been awesome.”

Charles also nodded to the fact that he has indeed paid his dues in Nollywood. “Surely, I have paid my dues in every respect. Close followers of my rise from those humble beginnings to where God has placed us today would readily concede that indeed I have paid my dues. From when I left the university as a graduate of Theatre Arts till date, I have literally navigated the lowest valleys of Nollywood right to its mountain tops. You would recall that I started out as a writer/Artistic Director, but over the years I have since earned full credits in well over 70 titles as director while appearing in leading role capacities in over 40 very successful movies.”©
