Nollywood Star Nse Ikpe-Etim in Conversation - Says She Regrets Her Loss Of Privacy.

A ground-breaking 3-day programme of international Nigerian Cinema took place Friday 18th – Sun 20th November 2016 at the BFI Southbank as part of BFI BLACK STAR.







The Beyond Nollywood weekender showcased a new crop of Nigerian filmmakers who are revolutionising the industry beyond Nollywood with arthouse, documentary, animation and experimental films. The event was been curated by Nadia Denton in association with BFI African Odysseys.




For the first time, one of Nigeria’s most sought-after actresses, screen queen Nse Ikpe-Etim was in discussion about her career and the Nollywood star system.

Delving straight into her career Ms. Ikpe-Etim stated that she never wanted to be an actress, but it was something she thought she might want to do after being captivated by Sophia Lauren’s performance in the 1961 film, El-Cid. Like most, her mother wanted her to study medicine, but she studied theatre arts instead. After graduation she worked as a banker before being cajoled back into acting by a friend who recognised her talent. At this point in the conversation, Ms. Ikpe-Etim laughed at her own naivetΓ© and stated that she only agreed to the role because she reckoned she would be paid a lot of money.






She went on to say that once the acting bug caught hold, she knew that acting was what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. Her only regret for pursuing a career in film and television, is the loss of privacy, however being able to follow her dream was not something she had anticipated happening for her. Which is why she takes her craft very seriously. When asked how she prepares for a roles, she stated that she needs preparation time because she favours Stanislavski’s method acting, which means she tries to stay in character for the duration of filming. In one case she was in character for a period of 3 months.




When asked which role has been her favourite role to play so far, she picked her latest film, A Hotel Called Memory(Dir. Akin Omotosho). Ms. Ikpe-Etim states that the role has been her greatest challenge mainly due to the fact that the film is a silent movie and she had to communicate using her eyes and body language.


The conversation piece ended with Ms. Ikpe-Etim stating how excited she about the quality of films and stories coming out of Nigeria and as well as possibilities for her own steadily rising international career.

  10. I love Nse Joor! So i Met her first in 2007. I was about 19 then. We went out to a bar for drinks in calabar. She wore this open-back maxi dress she was just dancing. And i was wondering who this 'girl' is. So, we started having an argument at the table. And trust me with sharp mouth. I think the argument was about morals of today against 10 years ago. As I dey sharp mouth she just look me day 'hold it there!! When I talk you listen. How old are you? (I answered) Good. I'm 37 years old so I'm old enough to give you advice. I'm old enough to even be your mother' *grabs tissue* 'You girls wear too much make up' *wipes her face* 'see No makeup. And I'm 18 years older than you'. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    na so I humble like humility's elder brother. But by the end of tbe njhth we became friends. πŸ˜†πŸ˜† Argument finish. I respected my self. Very beautiful woman. That's what motivated to dive into quality skin care products. She no bleach but her skin was on point. With her natural hair straightened out in short bob.

    Oya oh BV with google ID doris duke. Oya oh! Need phone number for your recharge card πŸ˜‰ I want to credit the phone directly.

    1. Her skin is everything😍 her hair even when it was relaxed is everything and more. Nse is bae. Woman with class. Better fish. Confidence. Married at her own time. Keeping it private. Ignoring haters. Few friends. Don't take bullshit but nice deep down. I can go on. But when you see a woman who knows her stuff you know.
