Nollywood Actress and Sole Heiress of the Jenifa Series, Funke Akindele has been casted in the Avengers, An Hollywood franchise by Marvel Studios and I know it should be some kind of a "waka pass" but who cares, it's a continuous step in the right direction as her academic history in Criminology continues to reflect in her productions.
From the likes of Taiwo Taiwo and Omo Ghetto, Funke Akindele brings a tough personality to her interpretations of getting justice for a cause or just a troublesome woman. You can also see a bit of that in her Jenifa Series which has become every viewer's delight.
I am sure Funke was casted based on that because she's playing a guard role and Funke surely has that voice and persona to stand up bold in front of the camera. What will this interpret to?
Funke isn't the first Nollywood actor to get a role of such international standard and will not be the last as more actors will begin to work harder and bring their best out to have such a huge opportunity.
Finally, enough of the comic Funke, at least for now...is like, yian😉. She can and will pull off detective roles super well just like Taraji Henson and Halle Berry.
