MAUREEN KOECH, 22, an actress in KTN series Lies that Bind, took a two-year break from computers studies to concentrate on acting and music. She spoke to ROSE KWAMBOKA
Who is Patricia in Lies that Bind drama series?
She is the sweet bubbly schoolgirl who is experimental, trying to find her way in life in a drama-filled family. I love playing the character because a lot of girls at that age can identify with it.
Does it apply in your life?
Contrary to the character I portray in the series, I’m a respectable person. I try not to argue with people. I, especially, love and respect my mom and she plays a leading role in my life.
What Intrigues you about acting?
Being in someone else’s shoes and telling their story. It takes you to a world of imagination. Also, meeting celebrities whom I admire is amazing.
When did you get your big break in acting?
I heard of a major screening coming up and went for the auditions. After two months of waiting and almost giving up, I got the call — the best phone call of my life.
What was your role?
I played Shiks, a supporting role for about ten episodes, in the series, Changing Times. The experience opened me up to the world of film and helped me gain confidence and exposure.
