LINDA EJIOFOR FULL DETAILED PROFILE


LINDA EJIOFOR


COMPLETE PROFILE




Born Linda Ihuoma Ejiofor on the 16th of july, 1986 (age 29) in Isiukauato of Abia state in Nigeria. Linda is an actress and model who got into limelight for her role as the naughty character Bimpe Adekoya on M-NET TV series Tinsel.



PERSONAL LIFE AND EDUCATION

Linda is the second of five children. She attended Ilabor primary school in surulere, lagos, Nigeria. She attended Federal Government Girls College, Onitsha, Anambra state, Nigeria. Linda did a diploma course in Theatre arts at the university of Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria for three months but got pulled out by her dad who at that point didn't support her dreams of acting.

She went on to study sociology at the university of Port Harcourt in Rivers State, Nigeria. She did her national youth service in jigawa state. Wow she has lived in six states of the country already, isn't she well travelled?

The self acclaimed movielover was a tomboy while growing up until she took the vows of modelling and had to forsake her shorts and boot for gowns and heels. When she is given a script she does her best to get into her character as she had to see movies like legally blonde and the devil wears prada to help her properly portray Bimpe Adekoya on tinsel. When not on the set of any film she spends her time indoors. Thats her trick for staying off the media eye.

Linda Ejiofor is single but not searching but if she were in the market, she would be looking for God fearing, clear vision for self and family, good scentand a good sense of humour unlike the norm tall, black and handsome. So interested guys should adjust their status. Oh! and remember i didn't tell you that.


CAREER

Linda Ejiofor has been acting and modeling as far as she can remember but got her first paid job when she modeled for an antiseptic product during her years in the university.

She auditioned for Tinsel in 2007 while waiting for her Nigerian Youth Service Corp (N.Y.S.C) post letter but was called the role in 2008 while in Jigawa serving.

Linda still plays the role of Bimpe Adekoya on Tinsel till date. Through this platform she has been spotted by other film producers like Clarence A. Peters for whom she played the nonchalant E.M.E booking office personnel who switched Wizkids and Pasumas event in music video Pakuromo.




Mildred Okwo also spotted Linda Ejiofor on Tinsel before inviting her onboard THE MEETING movie project were she played the character Ejura. The Meeting and Secret Room where she played the character Ada Obikaare the only released movies Linda has starred in. However, she has worked on yet to be released movie Heavens'Hell.

We are expecting an outstanding performance from her when this movieis released this is because, her performance in the movie THE MEETING is very outstanding and has gotten her award nominations like best support actress at the African Movie Academy Awards (A.M.A.A.) 2013 other award nominations include best rising actress at the Nollywood Movie Awards (NMA) 2013,the Best new actress of the year at the 2013 city people awards and alsofilm actress of the year at the Exquisite Ladies Of The Year (ELOY) awards 2013. In addition to these award norminations, Linda now plays the character Nike on the television series DOWRY.
