We have seen our fair share of great actors and actresses in Nollywood but what we do not get the opportunity to know is how they get to be as great as they truly are.
In a chat with Nollywood actress and Big brother Naija 1st runner up, Bisola Ayeola, she explains to us what makes her as good as she presently is.
According to the actress, first thing first, never forget the importance of studying, but then it is not just studying books but studying about yourself. As an actress, you have to watch whatever work you have done, and this the actress sees as you watching your own auditions which are a good thing as it helps you know what needs to be changed or now.
The next thing to do if you want to be a good actress is to study other characters. Do not be an island and be content with just the character you are playing or you’re used to playing, be as flexible as possible, and that can only happen when you take your time to study other people’s characters, thereby knowing how they were able to pull off a particular role. This does not mean you should simply look at them, but study them sometimes like your life depends on it (she didn’t say that, but then, you want to be good right?).
Bisola went further to state that as an actress you have to also draw strength and knowledge from family and the things that happen at home, you would never know which ones will come handy, but be ready to explore to that direction.
