Mercy’s Acting Inspiration
As a child, she watched Genevieve Nnaji’s film “Sharon Stone” and decided she wanted to be like her. It was also for the money, as she is not from a wealthy family and had a tough childhood. As a result, she considered acting as a way to earn money to help support her family.
Despite her hard work and dedication, her enthusiasm for acting only grew as she continued to perform. She loves what she does so much that it has become a part of her.
