#flashbackfriday 2003 when we shot the movie REAL LOVE produced and directed by @charlesnovia this was the first time a director would take me to a blind school just to learn and observe. My role Anna Was blind and I had to become the character not just act blind. Mr Novia gave me time to work on the character and get comfortable with my contact lense. My second daughter was a few months old but the script was so compelling and production had been stalled a little just so I could be ready. I miss those days when we were excited about great scripts and telling great stories. We didn’t care about the fame or glamour, just the excitement of the Job. Thank you PACELLI school for the blind for your help. Photography by @debbinstudios #actor #film #nollywood
