Former Nollywood actress, Grace Agbo has revealed that she left the movie industry to become a firefighter.
The actress who hails from Idoma in Okpokwu Local Government Area of Benue State, says she has found fulfilment since joining the Federal Fire Service, Abuja.
She said, “I like this new job. I have always wanted a uniform job but I will miss Nollywood greatly because acting has also been my passion right from childhood.
“My family especially my dad is very happy with my new job. What people are saying that I left Nollywood because of poor pay is not true. I didn’t leave Nollywood totally. I am just taking a break, for now, to enable me focus on my new job.
“I love my uniform job and I also enjoy saving people in danger. It feels really good; it gives me joy knowing that I can be of service to my country.”
“My colleagues in Nollywood should keep up with making good movies and let the shows go on but the big problem there is funding, lack of government presence and no enough opportunity for upcoming actors.”
Grace Agbo starred in Black Out, Mr Potosky, Lost Pride, Deadly Desire, Palace of Sorrow, Ada-Ide-Ichaka, Haunted Palace, Village Don, The Calabash etc.
