Ace Nollywood actress Rita Dominic has expressed her love for acting roles that scare her because it enables her to channel in her deepest darkest demons on screen.
The AMVCA winner made this known when speaking on her role in a movie The Guest. She said, “I like it when a character scares me. When a character scares me, it encourages me to go inside of me and invoke everything I have. You know, every acting demon inside of me, digging it out and just putting it into the character/role.”
It’s a solid argument and also something that explains why over the years, Rita Dominic has been acting conventional, strange and weird roles. The ease with which she adapts to any role given to her is something that has been part of what has made her one of the most sought-after actresses in Nollywood.
However, looking at it from another angle, one can only ask why she hasn’t been in a horror movie yet, to you know, literally scare the crap out of herself.
