Many people know her as Sheila, a role she played in the popular M-NET TV series Tinsel but Iretiola Doyle has been in the movie industry for long and is one to be reckoned with.
The veteran Nollywood actress who is also a producer, in a recent interview with Vanguard revealed her survival tactics while she grew as an actress.
Speaking on how she juggled family life with her acting career over the years, she said, “I have been striking that balance for 14 years, which is the number of years I have been married. Fortunately for me, my career and family grew alongside each other. My baby was three months old when I hit the set of Fuji House of Commotion. You need to see my car. I used to drive one nice ‘tuketuke’ BMW at the time. I had everything, from the baby bath, stove, food to everything in my car because I had to go with the baby. So my kids grew up getting used to my kind of work.“
The actress who is married to a fellow actor, Patrick Doyle continued, “You just have to strike that balance, and it is also a sacrifice. I am also lucky to have a partner who understands the business and he has given me all the support these years to raise our children who are grown now.“
