I Do Not Bleach – Pascaline Edwards

The issue of bleaching amongst Ghanaian female celebrities has inundated the media front in recent times with one actress or TV personality being accused of altering their skin colour every day.

One popular actress who was one of the first celebrities to be indicted for bleaching is Pascaline Edwards. Edwards took a lot of backlash from fans and industry observers when her released photos some years ago depicted some skin colour change.

In an exclusive interview with the actress, she denied ever bleaching and stated emphatically, “Bleaching is bad, but I am not ready to educate the stars who are into bleaching because they are mature enough to know that bleaching is bad.”

Asked if she will advise them against the act given the opportunity, she responded, “Hell no! I have other important business to do, so I can’t waste my time to go and research more about bleaching and its effect to come and advise the bleaching movie stars.”

On whether she’s aware and can mention some of the names of the various movie stars who bleach, she said that she’s not in the position to mention the name of any celebrity who bleaches, because every celebrity has his or her own reasons for doing what he or she does.

According to her, she has heard that some Ghanaian celebrities bleach for movie roles, but she doesn’t believe that statement, because she’s fair and doesn’t get roles in recent times; so if indeed it’s true that celebrities who bleach does so because of movie roles, she would have been getting more roles than she is getting now.

Talking about her movie career, she said that though Ghanaian actors or actress are beginning to shoot their own movies, she’s not ready and doesn’t think she will ever shoot her own movie because, that’s not where her interest lies for now.

“I will not shoot my own movies.If I want to shoot my own movies; I would have done so long ago. I like being behind the scenes. I just had my Degree in Exercise Medicine and will be taking a Directing course soon,” Pascaline said.

To her, money to produce is not a problem, because, she can equally produce a movie without money; since anytime she is ready to set-up to shoot, her acting buddies will not demand much payment from her.

Pascaline Edwards won the ‘Best Actress’ for the stupendous role in ‘Stab in the Back’ in 2001.
