How my journey as an actress started – Stella Damasus




Nigerian acres, Stella Damasus, says she became an actress by ‘accident.’

The actress, in an interview with TV host Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, stated that her initial plan was to become a singer.

She also stated that her first movie role earned her N10,000.

Damasus said “My first movie was ’95 into ’96, that’s the film ‘Abused’. I had no idea what I was doing but I went for it. I got it by accident. I didn’t plan to be an actor and thought I was going to be a singer because I worked in a studio.

“A friend came to my house and said they were going for an audition. I lived in Surulere and she was going to Ikeja. I went with her. I saw tons of people standing outside under the sun. She went in and came out.

“Someone called me and asked if I had auditioned. I said I haven’t and didn’t come there for that. They said they liked my look and how I sound. They asked that I come read for the movie. They gave me a script. I read and left.

“Three weeks later, they called to inform me I got the part. My pay was N10,000. My studio salary then was N700.”
