We finally have a first look at the soon to be released movie, 93 days chronicling Nigeria’s battle with Ebola and how Dr Stella Ameyo Adadevoh, played by veteran actress, Bimbo Akintola, sacrificed her life for the survival of Nigeria.
Akintola, in an interview with Pulse TV a few months ago noted that she felt honoured playing Adadevoh in the movie. She said;
“It was an honour, and the woman was obviously a saint. She must have had her[you know] but she was amazing. In Nigeria, we have this thing we do, anyone who is dead is great. But this was different in the sense that everyone I spoke to had little stories to tell me about different things.”
“We were shooting at the hospital where she worked, and I had done my make-up upstairs and I rushed to my car to pick up something. Coming back to the lobby of the hospital, there were few nurses there, and they started crying. They said I looked so much like her and it brought back memories. Now that tells you all you need to know about that kind of person.
The movie also stars popular Hollywood actor, Danny Glover and Keppy Ekpeyong Bassey as Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian who introduced the deadly virus into the country.
