Renowned Ghanaian TV host and actress, Joselyn Dumas, has refuted claims that her looks got her into the spot light.
Speaking to Citi Showbiz, Joselyn Dumas who has starred in some award winning films such as Adams Apples and Silver Rain, asserts that she is surprised that people still latch onto the notion that because a woman is pretty, it means that she doesn’t have brains in her head.
She added that she has always strived to be the best that she can be and that this attitude has helped her a lot.
With regards to her role in Shampaign, Joselyn says that it was quite interesting that Shirley Frimpong-Manso gave her such a political role, but she worked tirelessly to embody the character, in order to make it as believable as possible.
“The fact that you are pretty does not mean [that] you don’t have brains in your head. There are beautiful women out there with big brains! I’m an actress, it’s a job and it was quite interesting that Shirley gave me [a political] role to play. I took the job home, I read tirelessly, I watched a lot of political movies to make the character as believable as possible, but at the same time I would like to think of myself as a strong, black, African woman, who against all odds strives to be the best that she can be.”
Joselyn is competing with Lynn Bentil and Kabuki Akiwomi, who both star in the Shampaign series, for the Golden Actress award. Other nominees in the category are Maame Yaa Boafo, P. Fella Makafui, Nikki Samonas, and Jasmine Baroudi.
