Interview With Linda Ejiofor

 

1) 3 things that define you
God, family and my values, most important of which is loyalty.
2) Why did you choose acting?
I think acting chose me. When I graduated from the University, I wanted to work in advertising. When I auditioned for Tinsel it was because a friend suggested it. I didn’t expect to get selected, but i did. I worked on Tinsel for a while and the director of my very first movie; Midred Okwo saw me on the show and called me into audition for a character in her movie – The Meeting. I got the part and from that point on, it has been more TV, Films and Stage work.
3) What is the most challenging aspect of your job as an actress?
It is hard to pick the most challenging aspect of acting. But getting into character and memorizing my lines are some of those that come to mind.
4) What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
I’m very shy. People usually don’t expect actors to be shy.

Success is never instant, so when you have a conviction to do something, do not give up at the first or tenth hurdle. You need to work hard at it, because practice makes perfect.
6) If you were stuck in one of the best world TV shows which would it be?
I love Game of thrones and Grey’s Anatomy, so any of those two shows would be fantastic.

Yes, several times. I’ve been asked to present my drivers’ license or car papers.

“You’re an amazing actor”
9) You discover that your wonderful one year old child is because of a mix up at the hospital and not yours. Would you want to exchange the child to correct the mistake?
Yes I would. Because another family and child are also involved in this situation and so it is not up to me or my feelings. Fixing the mix-up is the right thing to do.
