I Was Introduced to Acting at 13 – Osas Ighodaro

 

Actress Osas Ighodaro has revealed interesting details about her acting journey.

 

She opened up that she was introduced to acting at the age of 13.

 

She stated this in a recent interview on Pulse One-on-One, while reflecting on her childhood, upbringing, and passion for acting.

 

Born and raised in New York, Osas emphasised the strong Nigerian influence in her household, which shaped her values and identity.

 

She said her parents encouraged her to remember her family’s heritage and behave accordingly.

 

“I grew up in New York, born and raised with my siblings and my parents. And even though I grew up there, I grew up in a very Naija household. Even outside the house, it’s like, ‘Remember who your family is and behave yourself, but yeah, it was a beautiful upbringing”, she said.

According to Osas, her journey into acting began at 13, when she was introduced to acting classes through a modeling school scholarship.

“I had to do a lot of convincing and crying, but I think I’m also stubborn; I’m a strong-headed individual when I want something.

“I had low self-esteem growing up, and they put me in modeling school. I went through that experience, and after that, the president of that school offered me a scholarship to take acting classes. I wasn’t exposed to acting till I was 13, then I took my first acting class, and I never turned back since, and I was like, ‘What is this? I want to indulge in this craft of acting.’ So I’ve never turned back since.”

She said she immediately fell in love with the craft and persisted in pursuing it, despite her parents’ initial disapproval but her determination and strong will ultimately led her to succeed in the entertainment industry”, she said.
