. Gaglo Blessing writes, Who is Amah Blankson?
Amah Blankson is a Nigerian born Ghanian,who has a passion for entertainment particularly acting, singing and dancing. She started out her career back in her school days. Her favorite tv show is keeping up with the kardashians, and her favorite female actress is Taraji Henson.
When did you first know you wanted to become an actress?
I was already acting on the church stage before i was certain that acting was my calling, my love for romantic books and movies such as Titanic, the notebook, amongst others also inspired my love for acting,and the desire to play the roles of the heroines I read about made me certain that at a point in my life I would venture into acting. The very first audition I attended was held by tinsel,I was put on set almost a year later and that was it for me.
What is the worst part of being an upcoming actress?
The worse part of being an upcoming actress is attending several auditions and not being casted for a single movie !its a big competition out there and so you find out that you have faithfully attended one million auditions without featuring in any of the movies.
Why do you think so many aspiring actors give up on their dreams?
The movie industry has not reached the balance of creating opportunities for upcoming actors . Using myself as an example,I attended several auditions for twelve months and it got me only two roles in two movies.
What is your best moment as an actress?
My best moment as an actress is watching myself on tv, acting also brought my boyfriend, chucks chyke and I together. We met on the set of ‘protege’ (directed by alex mouth) with chucks chyke as one of the lead actors. We connected at first sight and we are still dating. I have met so many people on set and during auditions who have become so dear to me. Those are the moments I will never forget.
Where do you see yourself in a few years time in the industry?
I see myself as one of the change makers in the new nollywood because i nollywood has a lot in store, to show and match up to hollywood . Nollywood movies already have the right cinematography productions, the production of love and action packed movies that we watch.(with respect to kunle afolayan.,Alex mouth and other fantastic movie directors that are helping us to achieve these). A lot awaits the future nollywood and i would be part of it.
