'I'll date a younger man if he is mature minded & experienced ' - Shan George opens up to LIB about her career, life & experiences

She's one of Nigerian actresses who has been in the film Industry before it even had an official name. She has had her fair share of success, a face popular in many households but has also faced misguided controversies about her personal life. LIB reached out to Shan George for an exclusive, in order to enlighten her fans and others, about who she really is & she gracefully responded. Read after the cut...


She opens up to Linda Ikeji Blog in this exclusive Interview about her Background, Personal life, Career and more.

• BACKGROUND & CAREER
LIB: Tell us about yourself. (Full Name, Age, where you're from, family background - silver spoon or otherwise, educational qualifications.)
• I'm Shan Walker George, was born in Abakaliki. In my late 40s. My mother is from cross river state while my father is Scottish. (so my mother says, i never met him), | kpako spoon background | Did my primary and secondary schools in Ediba, Abi LGA, Cross river state - my mother's village. I read Mass communication in the University of Lagos
LIB: How did you get involved in acting, How did you discover the Industry?
• When i gained admission into Unilag in 1996, i was looking for a part time job to be able to pay my way through school. I met an actress called Blessing Eremi (now Mrs Blessing Stevens) who introduced me to the Late Jeniffa Okere and Emeka Osai. They were about to produce a movie at that time tittled 'Thorns of Rose'. I was given a role and that's how the trip started.
LIB: Has anything changed about you since you came into the limelight?
• I don't think much has changed about me besides my age and the size of my bank account.... (Laughs)
LIB: When was your first role as an actress & How many movies have you done till date?
• First role, as mentioned earlier, was in 1996. I've done well over 200 films since then, out of which I have written and produced over 20.
LIB: Who is your favorite Actor/Actress?
• Every actor who carries and plays a role very well, is my favourite.
LIB: What else do you do professionally apart from acting?
• I write movie scripts and i also produce movies, besides acting.
LIB: If contracted to act in a semi nude way in a movie, would you take it up?
• I can act semi nude if the script is a corrective story. It has to be a story that will change people's life for good.
LIB: What is the most extreme change to your personality, hair, body weight, etc etc, that you have done to land a role?
• I have never changed anything to land a role. But I've had to make changes after landing d role, like having my hair cut, etc
LIB: Tell me about a time where you had difficulty with a character. What was the character and why was it challenging?
• Every character is challenging. I have had to play characters, portray people who i'm not. Roles of a prostitute, mermaid, robber, etc.


LIB: What is the hardest part of being a celeb?
• The hardest part of being a celebrity is that part where people think you are a rich person and once they meet you, even on the street, you have to solve all their financial issues instantly. And the part where some people show you hatred when they meet you, just because they didn't like your evil character/role in a film.
•• PERSONAL LIFE
LIB: Are you in a relationship?
• No
LIB: Can you date someone younger than you?
• Maybe. If he is mature minded and experienced.
LIB: Does your relationship status affect your career?
• No.
LIB: Would your sons have an issue with you remarrying?
• No.
LIB: Is it true what they say about sexual harassment & exploitation of upcoming actors/actresses in Nollywood?
• I believe sexual harassment and extortion exists in every profession. That's why we all need to shine our eyes and believe in ourselves, so that we don't become a victim.
LIB: Tell us something about you that most people don’t know.
• I am a movie junky! I would rather be home watching a movie than attending an event.
LIB: If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
• I have nothing about myself i desire to change for now.
LIB: What has kept you going all these years, your biggest achievement in the field of acting?
So far i don't think I've achieved anything. Though i am working hard at it. The love of God, Family and Friends have kept me going all these years.
LIB: Are you working on any current projects?
• Yes. I'm currently working on my new film 'ONE GOOD MAN', which is premiering soon.
LIB: What future plans do you have for yourself?
• I just want to continue to help people in any little way i can, work & pray, while i leave the rest to God.
LIB: Any advice for someone aspiring to become an actor?
• If u want to become an actor or anything in this life. READ ABOUT IT. GET AN EDUCATION!
And that's a wrap... Thanks to Shan George for opening up exclusively to LIB.

God bless you Shan George. Meanwhile, I have a pressing issue I want to air out here and hear candid opinions.
I'm happily married to a loving guy. He has an ex that is trying to stay active in our lives. They used to keep in touch - chat and phone calls till he realized she was always taking him back to their sexual experiences. Apparently they had an interesting one. My husband politely told her their friendship is not healthy and would like to cut ties. But really, a marriage that's just a year. He realized he's only human and wanted to stay out of trouble. But his dear lady friend is out for destruction. She keeps texting and calling which led to him blocking her number. Regardless, she used other numbers to keep texting and he ignores. Just lately, the ex has resorted to provocation. Sending my husband messages like 'you're such a sissy' 'so a woman has turned you to a jelly' 'pussy' blabla. Men are so egoistic and words like these just don't go well with them.And this is a woman that plans to also have a happy home someday - I might be wrong tho. Dear women, Why are we our own enemies though?
So, what do I do or what does my husband do in this situation? He can't keep ignoring all the anonymous calls he gets because of madam ex. This is a man trying to stay out of trouble. At least that I'm sure of. I talked to him about it and he said it's fine he'll handle it but I'm just so worried. Dear God, please grant our single ladies husbands this year. Lol.

@freeborn zinalima, Pathetic comment frm a lunatic lik u dat doesn't respect women/ladies. EWU lik u.

enekwe Kelvin said...

Nice one at list she open up.

ROYAL PRIESTHOOD said...

Wow!

D solution is simple which d cause of d trouble should simply and totally stay off her tracks b4 its too late which is ur hubby or else it wouldn't b dis story u wil tell later on.

Ur hubby should b careful for indeed she is on deadly mission and she wil do all she can to destroy whtever comes her way if she is really d vindictive type of person.

Am saying dis frm experience and best advice for ur hubby is to completely CUT OFF frm her and biko madam advise and keep on advising ur hubby accordingly and also never forget to pray for him.

D solution is in d hands of ur darling hubby to hand's off frmm her ex b4 its too late mostly b4 she trap him in btw as in using charm or any other tin against him.

A word is enough 4d wise and biko don't call d woman@all for dat wil b a big mistak on ur part. U guys should ignore d fool and she wil eventually giv up.

chinelo okafor said...

Pretty woman, God will grant u ur wish.

Ogbewe Godfrey said...

How many men she have now as preset, last question,

ROYAL PRIESTHOOD said...

I almost forgot to say dis ur hubby should desist having any affairs wit her both sexually and otherwise.

He should completely cut off frm her least his story wil b one of those story tale we hear and read abt.

Ur hubby is d sole cause of all dis problems if not dis wouldn't b d case.

OMIDAN ABBY said...

One thing u should know is there's always one unfortunate ex hanging around to destroy healthy rltnshp.
I ve such going for me too, just that I'm not married to this man yet but he's trying to avoid this girl but all I did was leave him to play his part and at a point the girl freaked out and stopped calling and then one way or the other she got my no and started diverting the text to me cursing me out. It was all ignored.
Try to ignore, it's not easy but it helps a lot cos that's how me and my hubby to b won in the case of that particular ex..
Slow and steady wins the race, not fast and furious..don't forget!

Anonymous said...

Kudos to your husband if he really did all that to stay away from her, not much men can overcome such temptation. There is little or nothing u can do, won't be advisable for u to physically confront such clearly troublesome woman. However, commend ur hubby, and continue to remind him to desist from d said woman, and if she happens to call at a time u are present, take d call yourself and sternly warn her and perhaps throw in one or two threats at her, or call her yourself with your hubby's permission of course and let her know u have been seeing all d crappy msg he's been sending ur hubby. This will make her know that ur hubby really loves u and doesn't hide nothing from u. She will definitely get tired eventually, as long as ur hubby don't bulge along d line.
Goodluck.
