Contrary to the perception by many that her alleged shop-lifting scandal in the United Kingdom (UK) about three months ago would end her career, actress Emelia Brobbey has rather been busy shooting several movies.
The mother of two has already featured in about five movies since she returned from the UK three months ago and is currently looking at seven scripts. Emelia told Showbiz last Monday that though it never crossed her mind that the alleged theft case would ground her, she was humbled by the support from producers who have engaged her services since her return to Ghana.
“I know I am a good actress so I was never scared that what happened would prevent me from getting roles. I have so far done about five movies including Obroni Hiani and Acheampongmaa since I came back to Ghana. I must confess the producers I have worked with showed me so much love on set. This goes to testify that I am still loved despite what took place.
Known for movies such as Abrewa Bayie, Mpaebo Tiefo, Kowa Ne Kowa, Boga Aware and Asantewaa, Emelia says what happened had rather made her stronger, especially on set but wished colleague actors would stopped empathising with her because of that.
She explained that she felt bad when her colleague actors tried to console and advise her to put the past behind her. “I know they mean well but I sometimes wish they wouldn’t talk about it. I guess they want to show me love. Anyway, I want to tell my fans to know that I am back doing what I l love to do best,” Emelia pointed out.
Emelia, who tried her hands at production with her debut Frema under her End Time Production last year, is working on a second one titled Forgiveness. It is due for release by December. Speaking to some of the producers who have worked with Emelia after her ordeal, Theophilus Amoabeng of Sharp Pix production who featured her in Acheampongmaa, described Emelia as a fantastic actress.
According to him, he wrote Acheampongmaa with Emelia in mind as the main character. “No actress could have played that role better than Emelia. I don’t care what people say about her because I know her capabilities,” Theophilus stated.
Miracle Films CEO, Samuel Kwasi Nyamekye said he would soon release a movie called Emelia Amanehunu which features Emelia Brobbey. ” Emelia is a versatile actress and one of the best we have in Ghana. I am willing to use her anytime because she is good. She is disciplined and willing to learn”.
Producer, Paul Adjei of Paul Gee production also said he had three movies with Emelia in the lead and did not think those movies won’t sell because of her alleged theft case. “Emelia is always on top of her game and I never considered whether she would sell my movie or not. I will use her any day,” Paul Gee told Showbiz.
