When asked recently that as somebody who has always been an actress, how did she get into hosting a talk show? She was emphatic in saying that “the Amazons has nothing to do with my career in acting; even though they do share some of similarities. First, it gives me more confidence to ask questions. I understand so many things because of my acting background but it does not affect how I interpret roles or even my acting style in anyway whatsoever. With the talk show and my acting, I know how to comport myself in front of a camera, I know the meaning of what pauses in a sentence can achieve, smiling for the camera or being able to pass across a message in a believable way.I would always act because acting is my first love and passion. I believe acting is not just about being able to teach and educate people. I am able to inform people and affect lives through the portrayal of any particular character that I put on. So, I would always act and produce. The talk show will not stop me from doing anything else because we do bulk-recording.” she stressed.
