I am just here, being myself. I have always loved acting and mimicking people. At a very early age, it was obvious that I was also going to become an actor. I was named after an actor called Yul Brynner. However, I am not under any pressure to surpass my father.”
Yul Edochie further disclosed that his father did not initially like the fact that he ventured into politics, till explained to him that youths need to embrace politics in order to change the society. He told Saturday Beats;
“My father does not like politics. He did not really like the idea of me venturing into politics but I made him realise that if we are all shying away from politics, who is going to save this country? So he just had to give me his support because everybody has been shying away from politics for too long and that is why Nigeria is the way it is. I would say that he is supporting me all the way.”
The actor further disclosed that his deep voice had endeared him to a lot of his fans, especially the female folks. According to him, he often gets compliments about his baritone voice.
