Nollywood actress Bimbo Akintola narrated how she was able to attain her “crying actress” status due to her effortless shedding of tears on movie sets.
“I cry out of frustration. When I am upset, I cry. I am one of those people that cry easily because I am a very passionate and emotional person. If I am frustrated, I can cry. If I am angry and you ask me to explain myself, I would cry, I am that kind of person; so I cry regularly.”
Speaking of her industry role models, 46-year-old Bimbo added:
“I have several mummies in the industry and I am like them. I have Taiwo Ajai-Lycett who I know would act till the day she dies; I know Joke Silva would act till the day she dies and I will act till the day I die. I can never get tired or walk out of this profession.
“Acting is my reason for being; it is one of the main reasons for my being,”
