Tell us your full names:

Fortune Marshall

Place of Origin?

Ghanaian/Jamaican. My dad is Ghanaian while my mum is Jamaican.

What is your educational background?

I dropped out of the University in my second year due to financial difficulties. That was in the year 2006. It was also the year i got pregnant for my son’s dad who got me through voodoo (charms). Life wasn’t easy for me, i did odd jobs to cater for my self and the pregnancy because the man wasn’t helping but rather abusing me physically and emotionally. I was under his spell for many years until God saved me from it and that was why i left him.

Tell us how you became an actress. When and where did it all begin:

I started acting in Ghana, in 2008, my first movie was “the lost bead”. My acting career was a prophecy given to me by a man of God that was invited to my church ” Assembly’s of God Ghana”, He said that was what God told him to tell me, that I should go into entertainment. A week after, I went to the market and there is this hotel close to the market place and I saw crowd there, I decided to go and see what was happening and it was an audition going on there, a girl was being auditioned and she wasn’t carrying the  lines well, she was repeating the same mistake she was corrected and it was annoying so I yelled at her unknowingly and the director noticed me and asked ” hey you are you here for the audition and I said no,

and he said “can you do what she just did, and I said yes, he then gave me the script to go through it and I acted and everyone clapped for me, and I was given a form to fill, so that was how I  got my first role in the movie, and since then I decided to go into it fully. I started my career fully here in Nigeria in 2010. I have featured in so many movies, soap operas, skits and musical videos as a vixen.
