Rita Dominic belongs to the league of Nollywood actresses who have contributed immensely to the growth of the industry.
The beautiful role interpreter who is in her mid-forties has opened up on why she is yet to be married.
In a chat with ‘Your View’, the revered actress said: “At the end of the day If I am getting married, I am doing it for myself not because society wants me to do it.I will marry the man of my dreams not the man society dreams for me.Society feels there is something wrong with you if you are a certain age and you are not married”.
Asked if she feels new Nollywood actors have taken over the industry, she said: “I don’t like the description ‘New Nollywood’.It is Nollywood, it is just evolving, getting bigger and obviously when an industry is getting bigger, it creates room for more talented people and people who are more trained in filmmaking to come into the industry”.
Speaking further, she added that veterans who feel neglected in the industry should do more to get involved.
“They should do more to get involved, at the end of the day nobody can sideline you if you are good.You have to keep evolving. I always say an actor has to be intelligent .You have to know things. That knowledge is what you put into the story to make it believable”.
Dominic also averred that it is also important for celebrities to surround themselves with people who will tell them the truth.
“Surround yourself with people who will tell you the truth not people who will lick your foot.You have to constantly tell yourself the truth, though it’s difficult to do”.
