Dark and beautiful, Ghanaian actress, Jackie Appiah is one of the most sought-after movie stars in her country, and Nigeria as well.
In a recent interview with BBC pidgin, Jackie went down memory lane to recall the ugly incidence that made her lose two of her lower teeth to a goat.”When I was young, I think about 5 .
I was brought in from Canada to Ghana. Then, I saw a goat tied onto a tree, I didn’t understand why they would tie a goat down.
So, I picked up stones and started throwing at the goats. At a point, the goat got angry, got itself off the rope and chased me. I tried to run away.
Just as I was about go open the door to get into the house, it hit me.
I fell and lost two of my lower teeth,” she recalled. When asked the character, she would love to play in movies, the divorced mother of one who said she can speak over 5 languages including Igbo and Yoruba stated that she still looks forward to playing a Gangster role.”
I still look forward to playing that Gangster role…like Charlie Charlie, how far…” Speaking on her love for travel and adventure, Jackie said “I love to travel a lot. I love beautiful places. So far, I have travelled to over 100 countries. And had different adventures.
Zip lining was the highest risk I have taken during adventure. The video went viral. I cried.” On what inspires her and what people love and admire about her body, the talented thespian said:
“My son and my mum inspire me. I also get inspirations from traffic. I see people see a lot of people hawking in traffic and I wish I could do the same. On what people love and admire about my body, I think my smile and eyes. The way I roll my eyes and my charming smile get people attracted to me.”
