Popular Nollywood actor, Harry B Anyanwu has stated that the Nigerian movie industry needs support from the government to keep flourishing.

He said this in an exclusive interview with MyNigeria.

According to him, support from the government will go a long way to aid the production of movies.

"The burden is not on the guild alone, based on what we do, we need support from the government. We need financial support from the government. There are certain things like facilities. Build a movie village to make it easier for us to do those productions.

"There are times we go to areas to seek for locations, and we encounter all kinds of challenges. So there’s so much the system can do for us to improve on what we have already on the ground as far as Nollywood is concerned," he said.

Anyawu also addressed the reports of the loss of most Nollywood stars this year, and he said, "So when you talk about some Nollywood actors dying, well, that is everywhere. It’s not when actors die then you think that is not around us because we are special people.

"But then again, what can the guild do? Amongst each other, all of us, individually, support those that are able to speak out if they have issues or problems. In-house, we help each other."
