Here are some excerpts from her interview with Guardian;
What attracted you to begin a career as an actor?
Acting is something that I’ve always wanted to do. I watched the likes of Julia Roberts and Bimbo Akintola over the years and I wanted to be just like them.
What led to your decision to leave a career in IT?
I had worked in IT for five years and was bored. The acting was something that I had desired to do for as long as I can remember but I was just never mentally ready to embark on the journey. In my mind, it was uncertain and scary, especially as the road to getting to a point where you become a household name can be quite tough. Eventually, I got to a point where my confidence in what I really wanted grew and that’s when I made the decision to switch careers.
How do you evaluate success as an actress?
I would have said how well your last job did but that may not be a fair statement. These days you never can tell what will please the audience. So my measure of success is the satisfaction I get on or after a job.
