Dima-Okojie acknowledges that this experience is an part of the course of getting into the film industry.
Ini Dima-Okojie talks to Pulse Nigeria in an exclusive interview about her audition experiences after she graduated from the New York Film Academy.
As a rising actor, one is expected to attend auditions in order to secure roles on television series or in film. This try-out phase is a test of the actor’s ability to interpret a role presented to them.
Dima-Okojie acknowledges that this is an element of the course of getting into the film industry. She said: “It’s part of the process, you have to pay your dues”.
The actress also talks about having to attend auditions really early and being “number 2067” on an audition line.
In the interview speaks about being rejected for roles. “You will hear no so many times in the line of this profession than you’ve ever heard”, she said. The former investment banker explained that a performer maybe rejected not beacuse they lack talent,rather it maybe a case where the actor's physique or skin tone does not match what the directors or producers are looking for.
