Lydia Forson

Alfre Woodard
Information available to NEWS-ONE indicates that Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson is having an amazing time in Kenya where she has been for the past one week.

NEWS-ONE broke the story last week that Lydia was in Kenya for a Deutsche Welle (DW) Academy, a subsidiary of DW TV sponsored two-week intensive training to equip selected filmmakers across the African continent towards producing an international standard film.
The film, when produced, will be circulated in all film festivals across the world and Lydia was the only Ghanaian invited to join other top film stakeholder from Africa and beyond for the project.
On Monday Lydia tweeted on her twitter page expressing how shocked, she was after meeting Hollywood actress, Alfre Woodard at the programme and they sat in the same class as though they were old pals.
“This is so surreal, I’m sitting in class with Oscar Nominated Actress Alfre Woodard and we're talking like old buddies, wow” she posted on her page.
Alfre Woodard born November 8, 1952 is a popular American film actress of many years. She has made numerous guest appearances in television series and motion pictures.
She was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the 1983 film Cross Creek. She also appeared as Lily Sloane, Zefram Cochrane's assistant in Star Trek: First Contact and Down in the Delta as a single alcoholic mother from Chicago forced to spend a summer with her uncle in Mississippi.
Woodard’s television credits include Hill Street Blues, St. Elsewhere, Puss in Boots, L.A. Law, and Homicide: Life on the Street. She has won four Primetime Emmy Awards for her television performances in Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law, the television movie Miss Evers' Boys, and The Practice. She has also received Emmy nominations for Words by Heart, St. Elsewhere, Unnatural Causes, a second for St. Elsewhere, A Mother's Courage: The Mary Thomas Story, The Piano Lesson, Gulliver's Travels, Homicide: Life on the Street, and The Water Is Wide. From 2005 to 2006, Woodard starred in the ABC series Desperate Housewives, and received another Emmy nomination for her role as Betty Applewhite.
Woodard has appeared on stage in such plays as Map of the World, Drowning Crow, Me & Bessie, and The Winter's Tale. She starred in Tyler Perry's film The Family That Preys.
Lydia is happy to have met such a great woman of such credentials in the America’s movie industry. Alfre Woodard is however not the only Hollywood actor that Lydia has met in her 6 years career.
Last month, she met actor Anthony Anderson and others whilst in the USA after an earlier encounter with Hakeem Kae-Kazim at African Academy Awards in Nigeria.
