Nollywood Diva Debby Felix - Day I fell in love with an old man/Celebrity News

Having harboured the dream of acting since childhood, it is safe to say that fast rising actress, Debby Felix is on her way to leaving her mark in the sands of time. She speaks to DUPE AYINLA-OLASUNKANMI on her first role in Nollywood, how she strives to bring out the best in any role she is given, work, and style, among other issues.
What motivates you as an actress?
Well, I have always wanted to be so many things; scientist, doctor, cleaner, teacher, being pregnant and so on. I am interested in what it would be like to be you and that is what motivates me. As an actor, I get to be you, her and every other person.
What has been your biggest career challenge so far?
I am yet to face my biggest career challenge. And I know when it comes, I will overcome. I’m steadily looking forward to it.
Have you ever considered branching out into directing or screenwriting?
Yes, I’ve considered screenwriting the most. I had done a little writing on my Instagram handles. I’m certain that with time, that side of me will blossom. I have also considered directing, but mostly for music videos. I look forward to seeing these dreams of mine come true.
What do you consider when taking on a role?
I take into consideration the positive message it will pass across. I also look at the challenges that comes along with it.
In your opinion, what are some of the biggest issues facing the Nigerian film industry?
In my opinion, I’d say one of the huge issues we still experience in Nollywood is that of finances or funds. If funds are readily available, I believe we’d have the capacity to grow beyond what we are now. We also need more good stories with compelling dialogue. We have some, but we need more.
Tell us about your first role?
My first role was in the movie, ‘Another Time’ produced by Uduak Isong for Closer Pictures. It was commissioned by Africa Magic. It was a lead role and It was quite challenging because it was my first time acting. I had to fall in love with an older man; I had to cry without feeling hurt. I had to become the character. It was draining but it was worth it. And I was still in film school, Royal Arts Academy, at the time.
What was the experience like for you?
It was an awesome experience and I felt privileged to play that role. I’m glad I was able to bring it to life. I bet you’d catch it on Africa Magic one of these days.
How do you balance your career with having a personal life?
I draw the line and I create time for myself, especially my family and loved ones. They are the ones who will be there when everyone else isn’t.
You seem to be in perfect shape. Do you observe any special regimen?
I watch what I eat and I take lots of water and fruits. An apple a day keeps the doctor away. That’s what they say.
Is it true about the notion that having breast or butt implants is an assurance for getting lead roles?
Whatever is meant to be yours will never miss you even if you are flat chested. And it depends on the role really. If it’s for the big breasted, then you are lucky.
Are you a designer freak?
Not at all. My life is actually very simple and I enjoy it that way. I’m a lover of simplicity and class; it doesn’t necessarily have to be a known designer. As long as it fits my body type and I’m super comfortable in it, I’ll throw it on and rock it.
Aren’t you a little too beautiful to be an actress?
There is no spectacle on earth more appealing than that of a beautiful woman on TV or a beautiful woman in the act of cooking dinner for someone she loves.
But don’t you think you would have fared better in a corporate environment?
Well I always go where the winds call my name. And for now it’s calling me here to star as a TV girl.  Maybe tomorrow it would call and ask me to come as an ambitious corporate worker.
What is your idea of being the best?
It’s not about being the best for me. I don’t strive to be the best. I strive to be unique. Being the best makes you number one but being unique makes you the only one. And that becomes your power.
Is it true that women don’t normally get the credit they deserve from their peers?
I don’t know about that. But I can speak for myself and my peers; I call them my inner circle. We support each other the best way we can.
Do you have a secret crush?
(Laughs) Yes I do.
What is the biggest sacrifice you have made?
I always try to sacrifice my happiness for the ones I love. If my spirit agrees with yours, then l come to my selfless journey. I go out of my way to make you happy, even when it’s not convenient.
Where do you hope to be in five years?
Well every child deserves an opportunity to succeed. To make their dreams become a reality. Every child deserves a super hero or a champion. Someone who would never give up on them, someone who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possible be. Especially those we call the juvenile offenders. In five years’ time, I want to be that superhero so help me God. And get married too.
What’s your goal for this year?
Honestly I think about it everyday; it’s getting closer to God, all other things will then be added for sure.
