First thing you did when isolation was over...
Go to an African market to get food items, as my wife cooked Nigerian food. Glorious!
What advice would you give to someone who wants to become an actor?
I would tell them to just take that first step - it doesn't matter how young or old you are. Sign up to a class. Learn the craft. Have fun with it. If it's something you really want to do, the steps that follow will come in easily. But acting should always be the main focus - everything else is secondary.
What is meant for you, will happen for you. Trust, learn, believe and you WILL achieve!
