“Good looks help my acting career” – Tayo Faniran


Big Brother Africa star, Tayo Faniran has revealed that his physical appearance helps him land important jobs in the film business.

In an interview, he stated that even without speaking, people would like to see someone with broad shoulders and a black complexion on their TVs.

Tayo, however, pointed out that despite his looks, he is a skilled actor, and his combination of the two makes him an excellent fit for the parts he plays.

In his words; “Let’s say my looks have contributed to the kind of roles I get. I am six feet, four inches. I’m really tall and I have broad shoulders. I am dark-skinned as well. Those things, put together, already make me a super attractive personality for TV. If you see me on the screen, even without me talking, you would love to look at me.

It’s important that we (actors) attract the viewers to what we are showcasing, whether it’s storytelling, reality, or whatever it is. However, that’s not all there is to it. There are good-looking people on TV who are not good actors. I want to be a proper and versatile actor that can deliver, whether as a mechanic, farmer, or headmaster.”
