Crystal Okoye hasn’t got a profile as long
as an arm but her profile is rich, unusual
and fascinating. Barely a year on the
scene, the curvaceous twenty-something
has done 18 movies with more than 5 of
those as the leading lady- now, that’s a profile even the best in the industry will
gawk at. In this chat with Weekend
Groove, the newest sensation in
Nollywood as she has come to be known
shares her experience, her rise to fame
and what makes her tick: enjoy… How did you get into Nollywood? My journey into Nollywood was as a result
of childhood fantasy that turned into a
burning desire. Ever since I was a child I
have always been obsessed with acting.
My first love was developed through
watching the Cartoon Network. Just seeing the various characters going
through their acts awaken the love in me.
Then, I would mimic whatever they do
and by so doing, I became obsessed with
acting. Seeing my passion, my family then
encouraged me to build the passion into reality. Later I began to sharpen my skills as an
actor by using my mirror to master
various mannerisms and acts, using my
siblings as collaborators. Little by little,
things began to fall into place and here I
am living my dream. Since you had the dream as a child, why
didn’t you start as a child? See, in my house, education comes first.
My family believes in education so much
they would not allow you to do any thing
until you have had a good education. I
started pursuing the dream of acting
after I have secured an admission into the university. I am currently in my 300
level, studying Public Administration in
the University of Nnamdi Azikwe,
Anambra State. When did you actually start acting and
how has the journey been for you? I started acting last year January and
since then I have done 18 films. Though
the one I am about to start will be my
18th film and I still have three other
scripts waiting for me after I finish the
next one. I will not say the journey has been easy, I have God and a friend to
thank for my fast growth in the industry. Like in every industry, there are
challenges and one of the biggest
challenges in the movie industry is sexual
harassment. It is almost impossible not to
encounter it at one point or another as an
upcoming artiste. But I thank God I have met the right people who have steered
me in the right direction. Sexual
harassment is always there but it all
depends on you, whether to play or not to
