Ep 28: How To Find Your Purpose and Understanding That It Might Not Be Glamorous, Ama K Abebrese, Actress, Producer
This episode I catch up with Ama K Abebrese, who plays the mother of the leading character in the award winning movie Beasts of No Nation. We talk about her journey into the entertainment industry, how watching color purple as a child ignited her interest in acting. Working in TV in the UK for many yers she took a leap of faith and went to her home country in Ghana. It was her return to Ghana that galvanized her career after being cast in Sinking Sands where she later won an awards for and later Beasts of No Nation.
She shares the importance of persistence and how every NO she got an auditions brought her closer to where she is. We talk very briefly about a secret project, which has recently been announced the new movie The Burial of Kojo which she is producing and I believe staring along side Isaiah Washington. The movie is scheduled to debut in 2018, follow their Instagram page to peek behind-the-scene.
