"It wasn’t easy, It has been like a decade that I did my last movie. It was very scary," the actress said.

"Initially, my director had told me to play the lead role, and I said “ no.” First of all I just had a baby, I felt I had not shed that weight yet. I was shy, I was panicking, I read my script over and over again. I said “you know what?  No. I would rather you give it to someone better than myself, because this is my comeback. I want to be comfortable.”

The actress further revealed that she was asked to pick the lead actress, and she went for Nse Ikpe Etim.

According to Danjuma, who finally played the supporting character Ella, the cast and crew of “Stalker” were really supportive, and helped her fit in.
