“I’m impressed with the talents. A lot of people now see acting as a viable option and that is a good thing," she started.

"The next step is for a lot of people to realise that just having the talent or thinking you have the talent is not enough. You have to train and develop the talent.

“We haven’t really got a lot of support. We do not have  as much as we would love to in terms of infrastructure and development for the industry to thrive. There have no doubt been improvements over the years and I am glad about it.”
