I used to be camera-shy, Actress Aishy reveals
From being camera-shy to being camera-high was surprisingly the story of Aisat Iyabode Asamu aka Aishy.
The US-based Nigerian actress, producer and hairstylist, who revealed she was camera-shy at the onset of her acting career, recounted her feeling of inadequacy.
“Sincerely, it wasn’t really easy at the beginning because I used to be camera-shy. I always felt like everyone on set was coming for me each time I made mistakes such as forgetting my lines,” she said.
However comparing her early days in the industry to now, the actress who is currently enrolled for a degree at Morgan State University, Maryland, USA, said a lot has changed since her debut in the industry.
“A lot has really changed; the way I deliver my lines, I have no anxiety like I used to, I’m more confident and I believe I have what it takes to be successful.
“A lot has also changed about my lifestyle. I have become more exposed as I travel more and also do some interesting things I wouldn’t do on a regular day. I’m however very grateful that no challenge has come with fame for me; at least so far,” she explained.
Asked where she would love to be in the next five years, Aishy said: “I expect to be in a place better than where I am at the moment. Grow higher, make more money, be a super star, and be unstoppable.”
Relieving her experience from her most recent movies Last Laugh and Pawon, she described the experience as great, saying she particularly liked the characters given her in both movies.
“Particularly in the movie Last Laugh. I feel like that’s more me because actually, my memorable moment as an actress is when I’m given a role that’s similar to my personality,” Aishy added.
