A former Nollywood female actor, Grace Agbo, has narrated how and why said decided to leave the Nigerian movie industry, popularly called, Nollywood to pick a job as a fire fighter, which was because of her desire to always help those in danger.


Agbo, who hails from Idoma in Okpokwu Local Government Area of Benue State, said she had found fulfillment since she started working in the Federal Fire Service, Abuja.

Speaking in Akure, Ondo State capital, Agbo said she featured in several movies like Black Out, Mr Potosky, Lost Pride, Deadly Desire, Palace of Sorrow, Ada-Ide-Ichaka, Haunted Palace, Village Don, The Calabash amongst others, but explained that she took a break from acting to enable her focus on her passion for firefighting.

According to her, “I like this new job. I have always wanted a uniform job but I will miss Nollywood greatly because acting has also been my passion too right from childhood.

“My family especially my dad is very happy with my new job. What people are saying that I left Nollywood because of poor pay is not true. I didn’t leave Nollywood totally. I am just taking a break for now to enable me focus on my new job.

“I love my uniform job and I also enjoy saving people in danger. It feels really good; it gives me joy knowing that I can be of service to my country.”

“My colleagues in Nollywood should keep up with making good movies and let the shows go on but the big problem there is funding, lack of government presence and no enough opportunity for upcoming actors.
