Juliet Ibrahim

Contrary to popular belief amongst fans and some movie actors/actresses, being light-skinned or mixed-raced doesn’t guarantee one movie roles.

Actress Juliet Ibrahim tells thisdaylive.com that her complexion doesn’t mean she gets favours.


“No. No, I don’t think so. Because of my complexion, I’ve suffered a lot.If I have a role to play, say the lead character’s parents are black, they’ll tell me because I’m mixed race, I can’t play the role, I have to play the friend of the lead character and they’ll bring a dark-skinned girl to play the same role.”

She adds:  “What people refuse to see is that when you’re mixed race you don’t have everything come easy to you.”
