Constance Ejuma The Cameroonian Born Actress In Hollywood Making News In The Upcoming 'Black Panther' Movie Shares With Thatcher


Recently, Cameroonians on Social Media have been celebrating a US based actress sister  Constance Ejuma, for grabbing a role in Hollywood's upcoming prestigious movie 'Black Panther," premiering on February 16, 2018 in the US.


Constances Ejuma features in "Black Panther", a 2h14 mins Marvel Studios latest Action/Adventure Sci-Fi Fantasy movie set to hit big screens this February 2018, where she acts as a warrior lady of Wakanda the #DoraMilaje.


According to the Award Winning Actress and Producer, the secret behind her everyday success is "Hard work and persistence."

Best known for "Ben and Araa feature film which she starred in and produced, Constance Ejuma, who stars with another Cameroonian Sasha Morfaw and Hollywood's international heartthrob Lupita Nyong'o in the 'Black Panther' reveals she and Lupita has never rubbed shoulders since her entrance into Hollywood.

Constance however told Thatcher that the Hollywood A-listers she has actually wined and dined with, are "pretty down to earth people who remind you & I that they are just people like every other human beings and not extra terrestrial". That even explains more the reason behind her 'humble personality', despite her steady walk towards the apex of success in her career.

Constance who recently featured on Voice of America where she discussed the plight of Minority Filmmakers Struggling at the Edges of Hollywood told this reporter that the main challenge she has has been facing in the bigger movie world of Hollywood, is "getting the opportunity to be seen and considered for interesting roles."

About how she found her self in the "Black Panther" cast the actress said; "I had auditioned for a role late in 2016 but didn't get it. Though I was very disappointed that I wasn't going to be in the film. I was just as excited as everyone that the film was even being made. But I was caught by surprise a year later when I was invited to audition for a stunt role playing one of the Dora Milaje; the warrior women who are the king's personal bodyguards. Needless to say, I was shocked but beyond happy to get to be a part of this movement." God works wonders.

'Black Panther' isn't Constance's first noise making movie in Hollywood, but what is more exciting and different here is that fact that it is her first time to work with the giant Marvel Studio. "It's my first time being involved with a huge movie franchise like Marvel. But this is not my first movie. I produced a feature film a few years ago called 'Ben & Ara' which has been fairly well received and has screened in film festivals around the world ."

The chocolate skin beauty who squeezed time out of her busy schedule to tell us more about herself said the secret to her ever glowing radiance, is "Maintaining a healthy lifestyle"
