An actress, Scarlet Gomez, has said that whenever she is on social media, she ignores negative comments, because she believes it should be a platform for positivity.
Gomez, who was nominated in the ‘Best Actress in a Drama’ category of the recently held African Magic Viewers Choice Awards, told Saturday Beats, “I try to ignore negative comments. And, when necessary, I address them directly and move forward. I firmly believe that social media should be a platform for positivity and support, not a place for bullying or dragging others down. I strive to keep it classy and maintain a forward momentum.”
Speaking on how she pulled off her role in the telenovella, ‘Wura’, the actress said, “First, I was playing the character of someone older than I am. I had to think as if I was that age.
You cannot compare the way a 31-year-old will walk with the way a 45-year-old would walk. Also, because the values of the character and mine are not the same, I had a conflict of interest. However, I was able to pull through. I think I did a good job.”
Gomez noted that the reception her role had enjoyed was amazing. “I did not think people were going to like it that much. It is catching on like wild fire, and it is amazing. The love has been so unreal,” she said.
The actress also stated that does not look down on anyone.
She said, “I am not the type of person that looks down on anybody. I always want to reply everybody’s comments, and be nice to them. However, it could be tiring at times.”
