I’ve always wanted to be a Lawyer- Jackie Appiah



Ghanaian actress, Jackie Appiah has revealed that she has always wanted to be a lawyer in the beginning.

According to the award-winning actress, she grew up in a family of lawyers, hence she figured she’d join in the line.

However, recounting an experience in her childhood that made her realize her passion was really in acting, Jackie stated that she was watching Barney as a child and she saw an ad for actors which was all the way in New York.

Even though she couldn’t make it for that audition, she participated in school plays and any acting gig she could come across.


“I just love to act, I just wanted to be on set. I didn’t care if they were paying me or not. I just had love for the job,” she said during an Instragram live session with former CNN anchor Isha Sesay.

When asked how she chooses her roles, Jackie stated that there has to be something special about the character and an intriguing script.
