How long have you been an actor? From where did you get started?
I started acting when I was about 17, I studied acting as an A Level student, whilst in college in London. I took a break for my University, but I have not looked back since I graduated.
How many plays have you done so far?
Two in England and two in Nigeria
Give a description of your character in the movie ColdFeet?
Teni is a sweet girl, she loves life and she really loves her boyfriend as well. In the story, he surprises her with a romantic getaway and she was hoping that he would pop the question whilst there, but things did not go according to plan though.
What attracted you to the script and what lessons do you want people to take away from it?
It is definitely an interesting and a relatable story, I love the twists and the suspense. The cast is really strong too. In regards to lessons; all that glitters is not gold. That is all I’ll say for now, I
don’t want to accidentally give the whole story away.
What kind of roles have you performed throughout your career? Are you satisfied with them?
I have been fortunate enough to play a variety of roles from emotionally and mentally challenging to strong or seductive. I have played a lot of interesting roles, and I am definitely curious to see what the future holds.
Do you ever think that you could have done better in any other profession if you were not an actor?
I think I am in the right business but if I wasn’t an actress then I probably would have been a psychologist or a music video director, I used to be really passionate about that when I was younger.
One fact we should know about you?
I am from Ibusa, Delta state. I am an only child so I can be a bit of an introvert at times but, I am definitely an extrovert once I am comfortable.
