Marc Baylis: Hottest Foreign Actor in a Nigerian Movie

Marc Baylis: Hottest Foreign Actor in a Nigerian Movie

We have had some hot and hotter foreign actors in Nigerian movies like the Ghanaian Van Vicker, and Majid Michel who are heartthrobs of millions of Nigerian girls and ladies, but the hottest of them all is Marc Baylis, the dashing handsome British actor who played the captivating lead role of Dale in Faruk Lasaki’s romantic thriller Changing Faces.

Marc is not famous in Nigeria, because he has only acted in one Nigerian movie and it is not the common Nollywood home video seen on Mnet’s Africa Magic channel or the Nollywood flicks pirated and sold on the streets. Changing Faces is one the very few Nigerian movies rated highly as outstanding features made for the cinema.

Marc’s thrilling role as the young white Architecture whiz kid Dale married to a Nigerian woman showed him as a better actor than Van Vicker and Majid Michel and stood him in class of his own as a world class romantic actor, even though it was reported that he was particularly uncomfortable with the “ass-taping” scenes of the erotic role in steamy sex scenes with the young reporter, Lola he met at the Architectural conference in a beautiful hill top hotel. He was quite convincing in his portrayal of how a born again married man fell for the seductress Lola who lured him into her bed on the last night of the conference and his life was never the same again.

Changing Faces opens at the Silverbird Cinemas and other theatres in Nigeria and Ghana from December 23, 2011.
