"My dad said acting was for the never do well people".....Oge Okoye

 The actress granted City People mag an interview recently where she talked about her career as an actress amongst other things. Excerpts......

Give us a summary of how it all started?
I went for an audition, a friend of mine told me about it and I followed her for the fun of it. I didn’t think I was going to be taken and I wasn’t so keen on getting the role. I wanted to see what it looked like. It was Obi Madubogwu’s movie titled Caesar to Caesar and surprisingly I got the role. It was the character of a young girl who was Patience Ozokwor’s daughter. It was a minor role but after that, I made up my mind to go into it fully, so I started going for auditions and got another one, Sister Mary and that shot me to limelight.

More after the jump

What were the challenges you faced back then?

Being able to stand your colleagues because I had that fright then. I found it difficult working with them but as time went on, I got used to it. The challenges were there, but the drive and passion took over it. We weren’t doing it for the money but to send out messages across.

As an only child, how easy was it to get the consent of your parents before you started acting?

They didn’t really let me go, especially my dad. He said acting was for the never do well people. But that was what I really wanted, but when I lost my dad in 2000, I decided to go ahead with it and my mum was in support of it.

What do you love most about being an entertainer?

Love from people everywhere I go. I travel to places I don’t even know anybody and people are ready to help me. Though it takes up your privacy but I feel the love is more anyway you look at it.
