British-born Nigerian actress, Beverly Naya is a girl with an attitude! And we don’t mean some average type of attitude.
Beverly’s skills at masterfully interpreting confrontational roles is second to none in Nollywood at the moment.
So, we dare say she would fit perfectly into the broad-shouldered fur coat of ‘Cookie Lyon‘ – a role portrayed by Hollywood actress, Taraji P. Henson in the popular TV series, Empire – and come out shining!
Yes we said it! Why not?
We fawn over the talents of Hollywood stars so much while also imagining how they’d make Nollywood movies better with their appearances, that we almost forget about how brilliant some of our stars are at interpreting roles.
Cookie is everyone’s favourite character in Empire – she’s a badass, she’s got attitude, she’s got class, and she is a powerful, tell-it-like-it-is woman who possesses a raw nerve.
Describe Beverly Naya with these attributes and you won’t be too far off.
Beverly has done brilliantly in movies such as Make A Move, When Love Happens, Brother’s Keeper, Suru’Lere, and TV series, Oops I Just Became A Daddy.
So, in any case Taraji decides to take a break from Empire, the production team might want to look in the way of our very own Beverly Naya.
