Apart from acting: I am a musician currently working on some new material that will come out soon.
Does acting pay? Pay is always good, as long as the outcome is income!
Career choice defining moment: The first time I walked into the National Theatre, I knew I was home. It gave me such a strong sense of belonging.
Roles in: Makutano Junction, Higher Learning and Block D.
Movies: All Girls Together and Kafura, which is in post-production.
I am currently reading for the movie My Life In Crime where I will be playing Millie, Jack Zolloâs wife.
Best role: Apart from being part of the Constitution teaching process, which was such an honour last year, I got back on stage after four years and did Disturbia, a musical with Festival of Creative Arts. I got to play many characters in one and I got to dance, sing, poetry and act.
Do you think that you are typecast?
Initially guys would call me for the same roles but I refused. Ainea Ojiambo had taught me better. I took it upon myself to work at being versatile. The roles that I take up transport me to a different level as an actress.
Image pressure: People expect you to be on your âA gameâ all the time, but I have had to learn to find a balance. You can look fabulous but also need to give yourself a break.
Acting role model: Natalie Portman, she is giving some insane performances.
