Award-winning actress, Kafui Danku, has dropped a bombshell; stating her displeasure at the bad breath some actors discharge on set.

In the light of the ongoing Ebola pandemic, 'Razz' Newspaper had an exclusive interview with Kafui to find out if filmmakers screen actors before casting them for roles that involve kissing or intimate body contact.

In her usual charming smile, the adorable actress said: I will be honest. As an actress, I have never been screened and has never seen any actor being screened before coming on set. "Yes, I know Ebola is now the most-talked-about disease but its not yet in Ghana. Its around our neighboring countries but its not yet in Ghana, however, this screening topic is a serious one that we have to start talking about in the industry.

She also disclosed that this topic of medical screening for actors is one that usually comes up for discussion when they are on set but after shooting, they all leave for their respective homes and forget about it. Kafui said she knows one can get Hepatitis B through kissing but has immunized herself against that. Kafui admitted: You may have immunized yourself, but what about the actor you will be kissing? How would you know he is clean and healthy?

She also said her concern is not only about infections she stands to contract from kissing actors but the bad breath emitted by some on set. Some actors have bad breath (laughed). Sometimes when rehearsing your lines with some, the kind of breath that comes out - is disturbing (laughed) but you cant complain or tell the fellow. "Some of the scent, when it enters your nose, you cant stand (laughed) its strong and powerful (laughed) Im sorry I wont mention any name so if your follow-up question is to ask me to mention names, Im sorry I cant mention any name. But I must admit that Ive also come into contact with some who have fresh and healthy breath.

Asked what she does before kissing on set, she said she is one person who pays attention to personal hygiene so makes sure she avoids taking in onions, garlic and other odour-producing foods before she steps out. Sometimes I chew a gum, brush or take a mint before kissing on set.

Kafui Danku advised that; Actors should start immunizing themselves or go for medical screening. Its very important. On the part of the filmmakers, they can start asking for medical reports to know the health status of actors before casting them for roles especially those that involve kissing.

List of infections one can contact through kissing are: HIV, Hepatitis-B, Warts, Swine Flu, Infectious Mononucleosis, otitis media, Tonsillitis, Mumps, Chickenpox, Measles, Slapped cheek syndrome and the like
