On first time on set;

Now, “Knocking on Heaven’s Door” was my very first film in my entire life. I’m theatre trained, so, I hadn’t had an experience being on set. So that was my very first time being on set.

A lot of what I know today, I learnt on the set of “Knocking on Heaven’s Door.” I also learnt about how acting for film is a lot more subtle than acting on stage. It was an emotional roller-coaster for me, because, shooting back to back everyday for three weeks was very tasking, very draining, but it was also very extremely fulfilling.

On Nollywood being fair to newcomers;

I would say yes, and I would explain why. I would say yes because there are opportunities coming up everyday, and if they didn’t give opportunities to newcomers, I wouldn’t be here.

Let’s be very honest, I haven’t been in the industry for a long time. I moved back in 2012, started acting in 2013, and two years after, I have done so many film projects. If they didn’t give opportunities to newcomers, I wouldn’t be here.

I think everyday Nollywood is creating opportunities where young, talented, upcoming actors are given a chance to prove themselves. And I think as the years go by, it would get a lot better.

The actress recently spoke on how she gets into character.

The actress is popular for outstanding movies like "Falling," "Knocking on Heaven's Door," "Soldier's Story."

Her upcoming movies include "Couple of Days," and "Ayanmma: Music in the Forest."
