There is a similarity between Williams Uchemba, Regina Daniels And Arya of Game of thrones. When Arya had sex in the final episodes of Game of Thrones, there was a small outrage on social media. This was because we did not know how to comfortably marry the murderous, revenge-seeking, needle-wielding Arya Stark, with the bold woman stripping in front of Gendry and asking him to remove too.
For Game of Thrones fans, we watched Arya for 8 years on Tv. We watched her grow from the first episode Season One till last episode season 8, Likewise Williams Uchemba and Regina Daniels. So when we watched that scene, it didn’t stand well with us.
Put, child-Arya, and Adult-Arya did not match in our heads.
Many Nigerian Child stars have suffered this fate. Every time they make an attempt to pull off an adult role in a movie, we cringe, because it doesn’t make sense.
This is not the case for Williams Uchemba.
Williams left the scene for a long time, while those he grew up Regina Daniels remained in our faces, consistent. But we had the Arya trouble with them, we could not marry their Child-act with the adult trying to kiss someone in a movie, ‘ugh, what’s kissing?’
When Williams came back to our faces, he did not come back as an actor, he came back as a youth leader, philanthropist, inspiring soul, and all other useful things. Notably, he came back as a comic actor, and boy is he hilarious.
Slowly, he found his way back into the movies, still as a comic actor, and here is what he successfully did- He took us away from child-act Williams, and gave us adult-act William. Currently, we cannot marry both acts together, they are utterly distinct from each other, and it is beautiful to see.
His face sells off a movie fast because you know you will laugh and laugh well. However, I had been wondering if he could ever do something dangerous, I talked about it with a friend.
Then, Dear Affy happened.
One short scene, below one minute, and I saw a glimpse of severe Williams and yes! I was blown away.
I wanted more, I want more.
Everyone saw it and owned, for good reasons. It was the cutest thing ever. Williams Uchemba is a great actor, a great comedian, and a lot of other great things. I hope to see this dangerous part of him in movies more, but I also cannot give up his comic role.
The best thing about the movie world is, ‘You can have it all.’
