Despite having started her career as a model, Nollywood actress Linda Osifo has stated that her passion for acting is bigger than her passion for modelling.
“I have a deeper passion for acting than modelling,” Osifo stated in an exclusive interview with The Nation. As an actor, you model a personality, image, and your life is all about it, and it’s all part of the same business; the fact that you take photographs is similar to what models do, but I wanted more, and I knew it wouldn’t provide more. I wanted more than that, and I realized it wasn’t going to provide me more than the acting aspect.”
Osifo in an interview with the Nation revealed how she got her start in the modelling and pageantry industry before becoming a well-known actor.
“I wouldn’t say I started as a model initially about I started in the industry of modelling, beauty pageant, television hosting in Canada. I did two beauty pageants in 2011 and came first and the second runner up respectively and those were platforms to take me to where I am now”.
