Speaking on his role, the actor said "when I relocated to Dublin I was considering pausing my acting career and focusing on other things before this opportunity presented itself.
"I was invited for this casting and I went thinking I couldn't get the role since I'm not as handsome as the character described. So I went to give it a trial, and the casting director looked at me and said directors have the right to change their mind when they meet better actors. 'You are not as muscular as we want but I think we can work Stanley,' they said. So I thought he meant on other productions. I was surprised when I got a call-back and landed myself this small role that means the whole world to me."
Prior to his relocation to the Republic of Ireland, the filmmaker started a campaign against child molestation, abuse, and rape with short films on public orientation.
Aguzie who made his debut in entertainment in 2005 as a comedian, kicked off his acting career on stage.
"I have other films projects in mind here In the Republic of Ireland and hopefully starts production soon. I am not desperate. I apply a slow, steady and surely approach to my acting and filmmaking career," Aguzie said.
His other works include "Emerald," "Tinsel," "Superstory," "The Andrew File," "When You Die," "This Life," "A Change of Heart" among others.
