If it’s good enough for Lupita right?
Nollywood actress Stephanie Linus has just dropped news that made our hearts flutter. The veteran actress who has hundreds of films to her credit wrote on her Instagram page that she is due to appear in a Hollywood Western soon.
Posting a sultry picture accompanied by the line, “Hey fab people, yours truly will be featuring in an American western epic movie “Boonville Redemption”Will keep you y’all posted,” she teased.
Now, what are we meant to do with that Stephanie? We need full details! Film title, cast, Director, producer, date of release etc etc.
On a more serious note though, this is truly great news, although it is not the first time a Nollywood actress has claimed to be heading for tinsel town glory.
One of Nollywood’s biggest stars and you could argue, previous rival of Stephanie’s also attempted a move to Hollywood a few years ago, although the deal fell through.
That’s not to say, however, that we’ve never had female Nigerian born actresses in Hollywood as the endlessly gracious Joke Jacobs appeared in the 1999 movie, The Secret Laughter Of Women, alongside Oscar winner Colin Firth and the beautiful Nia Long.
Perhaps Stephanie- (whose blog you should totally check out by the way) could follow in the footsteps of Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o who it seems has conquered the world this year after her role in slave movie, 12 years A Slave.
