How I Started My Acting Career – Toluwani George

Actress Toluwani George has narrated how she started her acting career in the face of COVID-19 lockdown.

According to the actress who played the role, Eve in the series, Wura, her career in Nollywood started during the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020, despite the fact that she was unsure of starting initially.

She said, “The COVID-19 lockdown in 2020 made it tougher to get modelling gigs because of the social distancing measures in place. To pass the time, I started making short TikTok videos, lip-syncing to other people’s sounds.

“I made a bunch of those, then an older friend asked me to do a one-minute video and monologue. I was nervous but I did it anyway. I had fun shooting it, and he asked if I wanted to pursue acting actively. I told him I was not sure but that I intended to pursue every opportunity I got, and try my hands on anything I could, as long as it was legal.

“After that, his friend reached out to me and asked if I could play the lead character in a feature film. I was in a lot of doubt and considered turning it down, but I did it anyway. That is one opportunity I am thankful for, because it snowballed into more. I thank God and the people who gave me those opportunities.”
