Fans should stop telling celebs how to act — Veteran actress Joke Silva

Veteran actress, Joke Silva, has said it does not help for fans to dictate how creative people should behave. In an interview with a popular blog, she said, 

“It is very important for one to stay true to who one is. I, sometimes, see a tendency for fans to dictate how one should behave. 

I don’t think that helps in anybody’s career, especially as an actor or a creative person. One needs to be oneself in order to interpret whatever is going on around one. That would affect how one tells one’s story as a storyteller.”

Silva, who co-founded the Lufodo Academy of Performing Arts together with her husband, Olu Jacobs, also shared tips on how to become a ‘trans-generational’ actor. She added, “One needs to be curious about one’s space, where one is in the world, the world around one and the characters one plays. That is very important.

“One also needs to be respectful to everybody one works with. Show everybody respect. It does not matter how old they are or how long they have been in the industry. Show them respect as long as they deserve it.” Punch
