I still feel like an up-and-coming actress –Lydia Forson

Outspoken Ghanaian actress and social activist, Lydia Forson has stated that she doesn’t consider herself as a top actress.

Lydia Forson started her career in acting over eighteen years ago. The Ghanaian actress, writer, and producer, in 2010 won the African Movie Academy Award for Best Actress in a leading role.

Born on October 24, 1984, in Mankessim, the 38-year-old is regarded as one of the best actresses of our time.

Wednesday, March 8, 2023, was International Women’s Day. International Women’s Day is a global day set aside to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.

The outspoken actress while on Citi TV to mark the day astonishingly postulated that even though she has been in the movie industry for close to two decades she said, “I feel like I am not there yet…I feel like an up-and-coming actress…The years still don’t add up to me”.

Talking about some of the challenges she encountered on her journey to stardom, the top-levelled actress said: “I always say I am privileged, I am coming from a home where I have amazing support—As the youngest girl in my family… my cousins, most of them are male, so I really entered the industry from a place of privilege in how I saw myself. I naively believed women could have it all”.
