“I Was Nervous On My First Set, Kate Held My Hands And Told Me That I Could Do It- Funke Akindele
To celebrate the birthday of one Nollywood’s best; Kate Henshaw, Funke Akindele has narrated her first experience while meeting with the actress on the set of her first movie.
“I’m sure @k8henshaw can’t remember the story I’m about to tell…… In 1997 when I started my acting career I met @k8henshaw on the set of Naked Wire. That was my first experience before the camera so I was so nervous. I played the role of a waitress who was asked by the lead actor to tell the lead actress (Kate Henshaw) that he loved her. Immediately the director called ACTION, I started shaking because I was so nervous. Kate held my hands and told me that I could do it.
After the scene, I was so hungry but wasn’t given food as (waka pass concern Nau) Kate saw me waiting and she went to tell them to give me food.
This woman here is so wonderful and selfless. I can go on and on about this NO NONSENSE WOMAN, VERY ORGANISED WOMAN. God bless you more sis, may you live longer in good health and wealth. HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATE THE GREAT
LOVE YOU Sis mi”
