Once a beloved presence on Ghanaian screens, actor Omar Sheriff Captan disappeared from public view in 2013, fueling speculation that he had left acting for a pastoral path.

However, in a recent interview during the showcasing of Latif Abubakar’s play ‘The Licence’, Captan set the record straight, revealing that he hadn’t quit acting but had instead transitioned to working behind the scenes as a cameraman.

Captan shared, “It’s not true that I quit acting. I was still actively involved in movies. Just that during the period, I decided not to be in front of the cameras but rather be behind them.”

During his hiatus, Captan traveled extensively as a cameraman, shooting productions in countries like Kenya and Tanzania.

Now, in 2024, he’s returned to his passion for acting, delighted by the warm reception from fans that affirms their loyalty.
“It’s not true that I quit acting. I was still actively involved in movies. Just that during the period, I just decided not to be in front of the cameras but rather be behind them. Instead of being an actor, I worked as a cameraman that’s why people weren’t seeing me.

“As a cameraman, my work took me to many countries so I was travelling around the world to shoot productions in places such as Kenya, and Tanzania among others but I’m back to my first love. It feels so good to be back in the spotlight again. The response has been convincing that I’ve been missed,” he said.
Embracing both acting and behind-the-scenes roles, Captan stated, “If the need arises, I’ll still go behind the scenes and also shoot as an actor at the same time. So I’m multi-tasking as a performer and also a crew member,” he added.
