Interview with actress Nimi Adokiye

Nimi Adokiye

Why Acting?
Acting has always been a strong passion of mine. Being able to mold myself into different characters and adapt to troubling situations is exciting. I love the authenticity that good acting world can bring on screen. Moving the audience into laughter, tears shows how powerful an actors role is.

Who inspires you and why? 
My inspiration is seeing my fellow actors work. There is so much talent out there and I am often times inspired by the “undiscovered”. You can see it in a film where the actor reaches deep inside and gives life to a 2 dimensional description. Known actors like Denzel Washington, Viola Davis do this in every role they have. My drive is to be on that level. I also love the work of Scarlett Johansson.

As a leading lady who would you love to work with as your leading man? 
I’ve always been a fan of comic books. So why not Superman Henry Caville I truly respect his work and think we would compliment each other well on screen. 

You just shoot Girls Night Interrupted where you played Kesha Newton. In what ways are you similar to Kesha? 
I would say her and I are similar in a sense of when it comes to being in the public eye I tend to appreciate it but at the same time I want to stay humble. Kesha has that humility I love. People know her but she is the same in private a public a good person. Also Kesha has great fashion sense. I love the yellow dress she wore when she was meeting her friends. She has great taste.

What’s next for Nimi Adokiye? 
Filming, Photoshoots, industry meetings, auditions, events and repeat! Keep Moving Forward! I do have a film I’m in talks but I can’t say too much: I can say Oscar Nominated South African Director.
