One of the most revered actresses in Nollywood, Bimbo Akintola has revealed that her most challenging role so far playing Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh in the forthcoming film, 93 Days.
Adadevoh became a national heroine after giving her life in the process of trying to curtail the spread of the deadly Ebola virus disease imported into Nigeria by Liberian official, Patrick Sawyer.
In an interview with NET Akintola says, “Before now, people ask me which is my most difficult character and I respond that every role I have played is challenging but I must confess that playing Stella is a big role as her shoes are large to fill. I have had to meet with people who know her, I have met with her son and I have read everything I can about her and I feel really challenged with this role.“
93 Days is directed Steve Gukas and produced by the duo of Bolanle Austen-Peters and Dotun Olakunri.
