|I Want To Become An Actress by Anoushka(f): 4:51pm On Mar 15, 2006|
Hey,does anyone know how I can act in Nigeria and do adverts as well? and i can actually act(not like our so-called nollywood actresses).Please i've always dreamed of it.Thanks
|Re: I Want To Become An Actress by hazeleyes(f): 11:02pm On Mar 15, 2006|
I really do hope you get what you want, however, isn't it a bit harsh dissing the 9ija actors.
obviously, you might be good, but lets encourage them
|Re: I Want To Become An Actress by keliscia(f): 5:16pm On Mar 23, 2006|
Hi! To every body, i want to complement all the actresses in nollywood, i think they are great and my dream is to become an actress one day. Kiss
|Re: I Want To Become An Actress by LoverBwoy(m): 6:00pm On Mar 23, 2006|
I think u should enrol in a drama school
u know when your are watching nigerians films, there are some funny directors that put their number on the DVD covers or in the adverts u watch just call them n tell them to hook u up!
make sure u don't go to nigeria just for a film maybe when your on holiday u can plan to hook them up WITH UR PARENTS OR RELATIVE!
they wont pay your flight money by the way
|Re: I Want To Become An Actress by keliscia(f): 6:05pm On Mar 24, 2006|

|Re: I Want To Become An Actress by freddie!(m): 9:06pm On Mar 24, 2006|
just visit my sites and i'll let u in on how to go about it.
|Re: I Want To Become An Actress by chinani(f): 1:01am On Mar 25, 2006|
Hone your craft. I give you props for knowing the difference between "real" acting and some of the Naija actors etc. I give them props too but ppl we've got to step our game up. I think since your in Wales you should join a theatre company if possible. Stage acting is different from acting on the screen but it'll be a great way to meet ppl, learn on the job, and see a little on the production side. If not take a class or do "community theatre", kiddie shows or whatever. Try to meet people, NEVER burn a bridge and think/walk/live being an actress. This means, when you meetsomeone say "I am an actress" rather than "I want to be an actress". They'll say "what have you done?" and you'll say "Not much, but have you heard anything?" You'll be surprised that they have a cousin, blah, blah, blah. This "cousin" will lead to lots of dead ends and some projects that are out of your "range" for whatever reason. But that's o.k. b/c you only get your foot in the door or "discovered" once and everytime you put yourself out there you're getting a step closer.
I'm actually writing a screenplay that takes place in Nigeria. We need more ppl going home to showcase talent so, again, PROPS.
|Re: I Want To Become An Actress by TYPOP(m): 2:45pm On Mar 25, 2006|
These actors and actresses are actually trying. So many things are working against them. We are BACKWARD in terms of technology. Thumbs up for them.
|Re: I Want To Become An Actress by chinani(f): 7:43pm On Mar 25, 2006|
You're right. I wasn't trying to hate on them. My apologies. I watch the movies and enjoy them as well. However, there is always a place for criticism. In the creative arts/world it leads to improvement. No one can say that the current stars should be content w/ their level of expertise. They should continue improving just like Nicole Kidman, Warren Beatty, Denzel Washington and more early in their career.
I was only trying to encourage Anoushka to do better than those before her. The advice would have been the same if she was heading to Hollywood instead of Nollywood.
|Re: I Want To Become An Actress by TYPOP(m): 11:44pm On Mar 25, 2006|
you are right. Plenty space for improvement.
you should perform better when we get to see you in films.
|Re: I Want To Become An Actress by keliscia(f): 6:56pm On Mar 26, 2006|
well i think you get wrong when you say that the nollywood people must improve like the hollywood, to say it all i just start wacthing nigerian films, because i live in between London and Italy.
And since i was kid i have bean watching american films i mean all those stuf,and i really want to say that the nollywood actresses are really great, i enjoy a lot watching them, they are so SIMPLE REALISTIC CREATIVEand UNIQUE ,i prefer nigerian films hundred times also because at the end of the film there is allways a MORALITY that lead you in life, but americans films are not realistic ,THEY ARE ALWAYS THE SAME. I WANT TO SAY THAT NOLLYWOOD IS MORE THAN HOLLYWOOD in the way they act,
|Re: I Want To Become An Actress by TYPOP(m): 8:28pm On Mar 27, 2006|
I'm not sure I agree with you. There are so many things that are not real in our movies especially most of their love stories. They don't just happen.
|Re: I Want To Become An Actress by chinani(f): 8:32pm On Mar 27, 2006|
I wasn't trying to put anyone down. I just meant: keep working to be a great actress. That's about it.
|Re: I Want To Become An Actress by keliscia(f): 11:47am On Mar 29, 2006|
WELL TYPOP (LOVE STORIES ARE THE PART THAT MAKE US DREAM)IT IS TRUE THAT IT JUST DONT HAPPEN, BUT IT IS ALSO TRUE THAT SOME LOVE STORIES START AND END LIKE THAT,THAT IS WHY I SAY THAT NIGERIAN FILMS ARE REALISTIC.
HI! I DONT KNOW BUT I THINK YOU WHERE TALKING ABOUT ME WHEN YOU SAID THAT WHEN YOU MEET SOMEONE YOU SHOULD SAY :I AM AN ACTRESS RATHER TO SAY I WHAT TO BE AN ACTRESS.
WELL I DID SAID :I WANT TO BE AN ACTRESS BECAUSE AM NOT LIKE ANOUSHKA YES I LIKE THE CONFIDENCE THAT SHE HAVE IN HER SELF, BUT I CANT PRESENT MY SELF SAYING THAT I AM BETTER THAN THE PEOPLE THAT ARE IN THAT AREA, THEY HAVE BEEN CHOOSE BECAUSE THEY ARE GOOD, AND THEY ARE ACTRESS, I SAID I WANT TO BE AN ACTRESS BECAUSE I THINK HUMILITY IS THE BEST SOLUTION IN LIFE CIAO

|Re: I Want To Become An Actress by chinani(f): 1:21am On Mar 30, 2006|
I applaud your humility. Yet, I wasn't saying that Anoushka is better than the Nollywood stars or that they were so bad. My intention was for the phrase "I am an actress" to be an exercise in confidence and reinforcement. By saying it you are reinforcing the idea and it takes confidence to say it aloud to strangers. You will start thinking "am I?" and then "OK well, what can I do to bring it to fruition?" On the other hand "aspiring" does not give an individual a timeline or a kick in the pants b/c one can "aspire" their whole lives. This idea isn't everyone's cup of tea. Honestly, it's kind of goofy advice so feel free to ignore it. Alls well.
|Re: I Want To Become An Actress by vichel(m): 2:30am On Mar 30, 2006|
First of all, don't take a picture close to a hamper, it kind of makes u look like a regular chick, and we do not need regular chicks in our movie industry. Please disregard everything i have just said, just kidding. Try to get in contact with right people, am sure your dreams would be met.
|Re: I Want To Become An Actress by keliscia(f): 2:26pm On Mar 30, 2006|

|Re: I Want To Become An Actress by mcmohd: 8:15pm On Aug 17, 2006|
What I would suggest you to create your profile on http://www.talentgroups.com and then create your own Music Group / Movie Group or you can join any other existing group to participate in movie making or music album. Once your group will become complete then you will be able to make your own movie or pop album.
How it works? Just check it out at http://www.talentgroups.com
Hope this helps
