Who is Nancy Isime?
Nancy isime is an actor, a TV presenter, event host. She’s just a simple girl next door, she’s quite calm I guess, collected sometimes and she is a happy kid when she needs to be.
On when she discovered her acting talent?
I think, I don’t even know, as a kid, I didn’t even discover it someone else discovered my acting talent , but as kids I used to act, but I never thought I’d take it seriously. I did not discover my acting talent, a director discovered it and asked me to go for it and I think that’s when I said okay I could do this.
On how she was able to transition from being a model to an actor and then a TV presenter?
Erm, it wasn’t much of a transition, I know that I was a model then I got a casting call for a TV series, and that was it and then a casting call for a TV presenter so yeah, there was no ghen ghen transition, it just happened
About her first movie role?
My first movie role was okay, I think I can remember my first TV series, my first role, and that was for “Echo” and it was cool, I enjoyed myself, I learnt more about acting especially from the actors who were on set who were more you know, experienced than I was, so yeah, it was a fun experience.
