The actress emphasised the importance of placing a high priority on self-care, in an interview with The Sun. She suggested a programme to teach actors and crew members how to look after themselves rather than putting their entire attention on their jobs.

We need change. If I were put in charge, l will organise seminars on how to take care of ourselves while we are still strong. A lot of us work, work and work without taking good care of ourselves and before long, we fall sick and begin to treat ourselves with our life’s savings, because of neglect over the years,” she stated.

She added, “People are dying and falling sick because of total disregard for their well-being. This is not right
