If you didn’t know by now, Nollywood queen Genevieve Nnaji plays the role of Miss. Adebayo in Half Of A Yellow Sun, a movie adaptation of Chimamanda Adichie’s book which stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Thandie Newton, Anika Noni Rose and Onyeka Onwenu.
Gene had 3 very short scenes in the movie and fans of the star have expressed some disappointment with this.
In a recent interactive session with journalists, the actress who has made over 500 Nollywood movies said
Half of a Yellow Sun is one of the biggest films I have done so far, but definitely not the most challenging role I have played in movies. I have done a lot more challenging roles in Nollywood
She also went on to say that didn’t have to experience the horrors of the Biafra war but hopes that in future if a different story is told about the civil war she will love play to the role of an Igbo woman where she would express what it meant to be an Igbo woman at that era.
