According to Ms McBrown, acting is a God-given talent which is more valuable than a certificate. Nana Ama disclosed this in an exclusive interview on Adom FM show Work and Happiness on Tuesday December 9, 2014.
She broke into the acting scene in 2001 with ‘Kae Dabi’ and has not looked back ever since, featuring in over 200 movies.
“I was not even the person supposed to play that role (as a blind person) in that movie, Selasi Ibrahim was to play that role but could not show up so the director asked me to try and I sailed through”, she disclosed.
Things were not always smooth sailing though. “I worked without being paid and if you will be paid it was just peanuts. “(But) The work is something I’m passionate about and always want to do it every day.”
She showered praise on Madam Grace Nortey, who had been her role model. Despite rumours to the contrary, Nana Ama McBrown revealed that she was ‘tightly hooked up’ and would most likely walk down the aisle next year.
