“It was having to simulate an orgasm. A heartfelt, believable orgasm,” Ireti Doyle on greatest challenge on set of “Fifty.”
Ireti Doyle is Elizabeth in the much talked about movie "Fifty."
In an exclusive interview with Pulse Nigeria, the actress spoke about her character Elizabeth, similarities between character and herself, greatest challenge on set, and more.
On her role;
I play the role of Elizabeth in the movie “Fifty.” An obstetrician, a consummate professional, a loyal friend, and a party rocker.
On what sort of person would love Elizabeth;
Everybody would love Elizabeth, but not everybody would admit to liking her. Elizabeth is that person we all secretly wish we could be, but don’t have the courage to be.
On character being like her;
We are both beautiful, we are both consummate professionals. We are loyal to the few friends that we have. I believe that there are certain lines that shouldn’t be crossed, but I also believe that things happen, things that are beyond our control, and then we learn how to make allowances. Elizabeth doesn’t know when to stop. I like to think that I have more checks and balances.
On greatest challenge on set;
It was having to simulate an orgasm. A heartfelt, believable orgasm.
The actress also spoke on working with Emmanuel Ikubese, her favorite scene in movie, core message of movie.
She also spoke on working alongside the other women of “Fifty,” what distinguishes movie from her other project and more.
