Nse Ikpe-Etim


A graduate of Theatre Administration of the University of Calabar Nse Ikpe-Etim is an actresses who gained national acceptance when she played the role of Omoze, wife to super-actor Ramsey Nouah in that thrilling "Re-Loaded", a movie which received and gained for the movie Director, Lancelot Oduwa Imasuen a nomination at that year's edition of AMAA award.

Nse is not a new actress per se, because she's starred in several other flicks that include a role in a TV soap,"Inheritance" that was produced by Emem Isong, ten years ago. She then went on to do other things that are not related to acting.

Although, Re-Loaded is one movie that may launch her into the mainstream movie world, Nse had been on the background helping to build the stars of the industry. Unknown to many she was behind the screen helping to build stars through her role as a technical and support hand.

She names, Stuffy Loral, an American actress and Nigerian Joke Silva as her screen idols. "I grew up at a time when there was nothing like Nollywood. For me, Stuffy Loral and Joke Silva are my sources of inspiration".

For her, writing remains an integral part of her entire being. I love writing. And I can't stop writing. Right now, I'm assisting Jeta Amata in his next series, which is on the story of Queen Amina. Jeta Amata has faith in me, as well as Emem Isong.

Nse believes that as a growing industry, which is not devoid of its ups and downs, the movie industry will someday emerge to become the major tool for economic development of the country.
