what’s your take on the film industry in Kenya?
l think the fair assessment of the industry at the moment is that it’s struggling. I say this because as much as we have more TV slots for Kenyan content we are yet to see that reflect on more employment opportunities for actors and better pay.
Are there any challenges you’ve faced in the industry?
Challenges are there whatever the industry you are in. My biggest challenge has been hustling for more screen opportunities and of course better pay.
what your dream goal as far as acting is concerned?
Going international, doing films from Nigeria to Hollywood back to Kenya and South Africa. I don’t just aspire to be a Kenyan actress but an internationally recognized one.
Would you play a major scene in a top international film that will have you shoot naked in some scene. Mark you the exposure is on a box office platform alongside Top International actors?
yes!!! I would without a doubt
What advice would you give to other up-and-coming actors?
Do not despise humble beginnings. Strive to excel and do not lower your standards when it comes to acting. Set particular standards for yourself and work on raising them, do not lower them.
