“I had nightmares knowing Dr. Adadevoh,’ actress reveals

"If you read the script and you realised all the things that she did, you would start to shake. I think I started having nightmares.


Bimbo Akintola Ebola heroine in Nigeria, has said she had nightmares while trying to get into her character.

Speaking to The Punch, the actress revealed that though she was excited about the role at first, she started having nightmares after reading the script where she got to know the personality of the character she had to interpret.

“You know at first, I was not really thinking about it; you are just excited about the fact that you are doing something that is so important, because I think it is extremely important that we tell our own stories,” she said.

'I am tired of hearing other people tell our stories as they don’t tell it as good as we can, so let’s start doing it. That was my first excitement and then it turned out she was a strong woman. If you read the script and you realised all the things that she did, you would start to shake.

'I think I started having nightmares. She was such an amazing person I can’t explain how amazing she was. I keep saying amazing because I don’t have any other word to use. If you had a conversation with one person that knew her, you would understand what I am saying,' she revealed.
