Nadia Brian shared that she had rejected an offer to act as a lead role in a 12-episode Hollywood drama series.
Why did the Perlis-born bombshell turn down the role, you asked? According to the actress herself, the overseas project required her to go nude, which is against her cultural beliefs.
In an interview with BH Ahad, the 30-year-old starlet explained that she was initially thrilled to receive the offer. Her excitement, however, turned to disappointment after reading through the script, only to discover that her character strips off her clothes for several risqué scenes.
“Those are on top of the kissing scenes. Perhaps being naked is no big deal in Hollywood, but I’m not willing to do it. I may dress sexily but I will not undress on set to do steamy scenes for a streaming platform in Hollywood,” the “Titian Takdir” actress said.
Nadia further added that such roles would also tarnish her reputation as well as her family’s good name. The 30-year-old commented, “I admit, all actors dream to act in Hollywood. But we are Malay and Muslims, our culture is not the same as in Hollywood.”
The filming is scheduled to start this month and carry on for six months in Ireland. “It’s all right, it’s just not my luck,” Nadia remarked. She also took to her official Instagram to share with her followers a screenshot of her interview link with the local publication.
Scrolling through the comments, Nadia has been praised by a lot of fans for making the right decision. Apart from that, others also pray that the actress will continue to achieve better success in the local showbiz.
