I read an article last week titled ‘From Hollywood To Nollywood: The Story of Osas Ighodaro’ and I was pleasantly surprised to find out the newly-wed actress had had stints in Hollywood projects, including episodes of Law & Order, Conviction and Meet the browns. I was curious to see how she did in those roles, but I couldn’t find any of them.
Thankfully, I’ll get the chance to finally see Osas in a Hollywood film, when a new film, Where Children Play, is released later this year in October.
Where Children Play follows the story of a young woman who is able to free herself from a violent family situation in an act of self-preservation. 10 years down the line however, she must return to where it all began and face her fears head on.
The film was written and directed by Ghanaian-American director, Leila Djansi and stars a host of African-American actors, including Teyonah Parris, Brian White, Edwina Findley, Macy Gray, Leon, Miranda Bailey and of course, Osas Ighodaro Ajibade.
There’s no word yet on whether or not the film will be coming to Nigeria, but of course, we’ll love to see it. If for nothing else, for Osas (and Teyonah Parris).
Watch the trailer below.
