FORMER Big Brother Naija housemate and budding actress, Antoinette Lecky, popularlly called Anto Lecky has given a clue to why she decided to relocate to Nigeria from the United States of America.
She said she hasn’t been featuring more in Nollywood movies lately because she doesn’t want to be typecast due to her American accent.
The celebrity said she didn’t envisage things might would be tougher than she expected though she has no regrets about relocating back to Nigeria from the United States of America. The budding actress, also explained that at the moment she is still going through the learning ropes of acting, so as to become a more versatile actress.
Anto Lecky said this during an interview with Sunday Scoop, “(I have) no regrets (relocating to Nigeria). Some days are harder than others, especially with the insecurity at the moment, but I have been able to make a name for myself here and doing things I always dreamt of.”
The reality TV star also affirmed the view held by many that social media dramas were sometimes staged. She said, “I try to focus on work and mind my business. But, sometimes, social media dramas are staged for buzz and hype. However, it is just not something I am interested in.”
Anto Lecky also suggested that children should be taught about consent and rape from an early age. She said, “Any rapist caught should bear the full weight of the law. When people see that there are consequences for their actions.
I believe that they would be less likely to rape. Also, from a young age, male and female children should be taught about consent and rape, so that they can identify and report certain things that happen to them. That would, hopefully, curb the number of people that grow up to become rapists”
The actress also maintained that she did not want to be typecast in movies because of her American accent. She said, “I would love to act in crime, legal and political dramas. I also don’t want to be typecast because of my American accent. I am a learning actress and I am ready to learn any part, regardless of accent. I can speak a bit of pidgin English.”
