A former Big Brother Naija housemate, Vanessa William, aka Vandora, has said that she started acting after God released her from the shackles of fear that she had been bound in.

She told Saturday Beats, “I am trying to put myself in every aspect of acting. Acting is something I was afraid of, even though it is something I like to do. It comes with a lot of challenges, especially for a female, and the kind of family I come from. A while ago, I had an encounter with God, and He told me that He had released me from the bondage of fear. That was when I started to attack it (acting career). I am glad I did, because so far, it has been an amazing journey, and I am very excited for what is ahead.”

Sharing her experience on a movie set, Vandora said, “I was very nervous on set, but when God has set a path for one and one has the right energy, things tend to go a lot easier. That is how I know I am directed on this path.

“I am just taking each day as it comes but acting takes over one’s entire life, though I have a good support system. I have a manager for my business. I also try to plan my time well to balance all my activities. In the long run, I believe that acting would help my business get more exposure. Now that I am not married, it is a good time to focus on building myself.”

She also stated that her goal as an actor was to be versatile, and was not afraid of criticism.
