Upcoming Nollywood actress, Nneoma Okoro has talked about her experience when she was asked to act a romantic scene with her idol, Ramsey Nouah.
According to Nneoma, it was awkward and stimulating at the same time, but Ramsey did his best to help her all the way.
She added that she respects the veteran actor because he understands his craft.
Her words, “In the movie ‘Levi’ shot in 2017 in Enugu, i was supposed to be the A-lister actor’s nurse, a night nurse with a script to seduce him.
“I remember having scenes where I seduced him. Tension nearly killed me but thanks to him. He noticed and asked the director for a 20 minutes recess on my behalf. He called me outside and took out his phone and showed me a super hilarious video on YouTube which we saw together and laughed over. Ramsey knew I hadn’t worked with him before, so, it was natural to have tensions and he made it way easier for me. I respect artists that understand their craft well enough, their fame will always go far. Prior to then, I had always wanted to work with Ramsey Nouah, having watched him as a kid while growing up. It was a dream come true.”
Big ups to Ramsey.
