Nollywood actress Nneoma Okoro has taken to social media to open up on her behind the scene experience with popular actor and director of Living in Bondage sequel Breaking Free, Ramsey Nouah.
Ramsey Nouah and Nneoma Okoro both worked together as lead cast in a 2017 film. The script for the film dictated that the actress plays the role of a dirty A-list nurse whose job was to seduce the popular actor.
According to Nneoma, the movie was her first with Noah — an actor whom she idolized while growing up as a kid. And so she ended up feeling really nervous about executing her role. But Noah took notice of her tension and moved to ease it with the power of laughter.
She wrote on her Whatsapp story: “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 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.”
