”An actress should be able to undress anywhere”-Nollywood actress, Biodun Okeowo
By Patricia Uyeh
Biodun Okeowo, Nollywood actress, popular for her roles in Yoruba movies has revealed that having a good body is an added advantage in the movie industry as the person could be called upon any time to undress and change into costumes on set.
The Communication Arts graduate of Lagos State University, Ojo said this in a recent interview with Punch. She began her acting career in 2006 under the tutelage of Ray Eyiwunmi Organisation where she learnt some lessons. She said:
“While I was with Ray Eyiwunmi Organisation, I learnt that the show must always go on no matter what happens. As an actor, you must be focused and disciplined. Before getting into the industry, I was temperamental but I have since learnt how to be patient and take whatever comes my way. Back then, we were also taught that you must be able to undress anywhere and change into costumes because you can be called to perform anywhere and anytime. You also need to have a good body; that way you can play any role and would not feel bad about undressing when there is a need to do so”
