I sucked, they laughed at me, Yvonne Nelson says as she shares inspiring story of her rise to stardom

Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson has shared the story of how she made her entry into the movie industry and remained a household name in the industry.

Nelson took to her verified Instagram page on Thursday to share the inspiring story with a photo of her first movie.

The screen diva, who is a force to reckon with in the Ghanaian movie industry and Nollywood, said she started acting during her first year at Central University, Accra in Ghana.

They came to call “me during lectures for a meeting, I got there and realized they were shooting this movie,” she said that marked her grand entry into the movie industry and rise to stardom.

Nelson added that she had to endure the pressure of attending classes and acting and also travelling to Nigeria for movie roles for four years until she graduated and devoted all her time to acting.

She wrote:

“The arrogant princess Tyra was in Central University level 100 when Salam called me during lectures for a meeting, I got there and realized they were shooting this movie…he told me he wanted to see how I looked in the costume, to cut this long narration short, I changed, they gave me a script and started shooting immediately, geez! I sucked! Couldn’t focus! Had no experience, they laughed and teased me.

‘There was a point Kofi Adjorlolo got so angry he asked Salam and the director to replace me, after my last scene I whispered to one of the extras I wasn’t gonna come back the next day, she obviously went straight to Salam and told him, that day was embarrassing, humiliating but guess what, it was the biggest BLESSING in my career and my acting journey, it opened many doors, the country asked who this new girl was! In class I couldn’t even concentrate, group presentations sucked cuz everyone was waiting for me to mess up so they could laugh , (it’s a school thing).

“Lectures started at 7am and shoot around 9am, I was always under pressure to leave school and go on set! Imagine closing from set at midnight, going for lectures at 7am and repeating this for 4years. Haven’t even mentioned trips to Nigeria etc for work! I’m proud I graduated! I’m proud I didn’t give up on acting.

“Not to bore you, if you are going through tough times (it can be anything), if you are under any kind of pressure, just know you’re gonna look back and thank those days because most blessings come from (uncertainties, dark days, disappointments, closed doors, heartbreaks etc) TRUST THE PROCESS.”
