Yul Edochie, a well-known Nollywood actor, describes how he helped Lizzy Gold, a fellow actor, go from a struggling actress to a star.
When Yul discovered Lizzy’s hidden skill during the COVID-19 lockdown, he said that’s when it all began.
The polygamous man claimed to have approached Lizzy Gold and offered to expertly direct her films.
Yul Edochie posted a lengthy message on Instagram, saying;
“Let me tell you guys a story about @lizzygoldofficial
I took a handful of her movies to view during the corona break. Then I phoned her and told her I had seen some of her movies and while she did try, I could see she still had a lot to give as an actor since she clearly has a lot of acting skill that was just waiting to be discovered.
I advised her that she needed a wild director to bring it out, like myself.
No be the same film wey I dey do since, what will be different in yours, she chuckled mockingly and told me.
I chuckled as I informed her that I was a totally different director. You are clueless. Your career will change if I give you one of my films to direct. You’ll sneeze. With just one movie, you’ll quickly become famous. I’m not sure why, but I suppose God is trying to ruin your career through me.
Additionally, I advised her to stop speaking to me for the rest of her life if I were to direct one film for her and it didn’t go well.
She ultimately agreed to give it a try even though she still didn’t believe me.
I instructed her to send me any scripts in which she would be the main character and to entrust the rest to me.
She sent me the “Princess Olivia” script.
I started by altering the script to fulfill my goals.
As soon as we got to the set, I told her, “Just listen to everything I tell you to do as your director, learn them, and do them, because as a director I hold nothing back, I’ll teach you all my acting tricks I’ve picked up throughout my entire career, and if you learn well, it will stick with you forever.”
We created magic as she listened.
She became an overnight sensation after the release of the film “Princess Olivia,” and the things I told her stuck in her mind.
I giggle as I watch her most recent movies because I see her doing the things I taught her and giving fantastic performances.
I’m happy with it.
I’m glad I had a positive effect on her career.
I have made the decision to share this tale today as a trumpet blower.
God granted me the ability to make anyone into a star as a director.
And if you don’t sound the alarm in this life, usually no one will.
So I blow my own well.
Have a great weekend guys.”
