Kiki Omeili is a medical doctor but became a Nollywood actress because of her likeness for the arts. She shot into limelight in 2012 through the movie, “Married but Living Single.”
Although, it wasn’t so easy ditching Medicine for Art, Kiki explained that she is infusing her background into her passion.
In a chat with PremiumTimes, Kiki talked about her background, her career, amongst other issues.
on What was it like coming into the movie industry from medicine
Coming into the movie industry, especially from a medical background was not easy, I would attend auditions, and a lot of times when I get auditioned they would ask what course I studied. They are always shocked to know that I am a medical doctor. So, it took quite a lot to be able to convince people that I knew what I was doing and that I actually had what it took to be in the movie industry. So it wasn’t very easy in the beginning but thanks to a few break through here and there, I think I have been able to secure a place in Nollywood.
on what she loves most about acting
I love the fact that you can just totally transform and become someone else; you can take a character from scratch and give it life. You eat the character, you breath the character, you live the character, you create mannerisms for the character, and you create reactions on how that character reacts to certain situations. Most importantly, I love acting as it affords liberty to take on a totally different personality.
