One may think that because she has not done many movies in Nollywood, beautiful Nigerian actress Constance Okoro will accept any script that comes her way. But she says ‘hell no.’
She tells NEWS-ONE in an exclusive interview that she does not cast for just any movie.
Though she has not done many movies, she has rejected some scripts in the past.
“I for one, if I wanted to do something it has to be standard movie, strategic and challenging. If I don’t get such scripts, I kind of relax. I am ready to do more movies but it has to be standard, then I will be part of it,” she said.
From Imo State, Constance is described as an amazing actress. She brings some freshness to Nollywood and is gradually making a name for herself.
She started school at Our Lady of Fatima Primary School and then to Federal Government Girls College before going to University of Lagos.
She studied Business Administration but ended up enjoying a career in showbiz. Now an actress and also a business woman who is into buying and selling, she entered showbiz as a model.
She started modeling some eight years ago, doing a lot of modeling jobs for top Nigerian companies like MTN-Nigeria, Black Pearl- an international hair weave-on, Firestone and a number others.
“Growing up, I always see myself as a career person but in between I love to do the modeling thing. So that was where I got the dream,” she revealed.
But some six years ago, she decided to try acting. Her first movie was True Sacrifice starring Ramsey Nouah, Nonso Diobi and Ernest Obi.
“It was an ok movie,” she described it. “It was more like I’m having fun. I was just having fun on that set. It was a normal Nigerian movie. I played the main character, Ernest Obi’s sister.”
According to her, it wasn’t a big challenge for her perhaps due to the fact that she had flirted with showbiz for awhile. That probably has taken the frightful experiences new actors usually encounter.
After True Sacrifice, she had scripts to act in other movies. However, she turned them down. Her reason was because she wanted standard and more technical movies to star in.
Her second movie was Spirit of Assassin, directed by Andy Boyo and starring Yemi Blaq and Fredrick Leonard. That movie was premiered in Ghana recently.
“I accepted to act in Spirit of Assassin because I like it. It was different. It has stunts and I knew I could do it,” she added.
Constance did most of the stunt parts in Spirit of Assassin. Her role and stunt became talk of the town when the movie premiered in Ghana somewhere last year.
