Actress, now turned reporter, Victoria Lebene has revealed that it’s hard to survive on just her acting income.

According to her, she has not stopped acting, but only pursuing other interests.

In an interview with Showbiz, Victoria mentioned it is very expensive being an actress, especially with the nation’s film industry currently ‘dancing on wobbly legs’.

“No I have not stopped acting, there is no way I will stay out of acting but we all know the issue, the country’s movie business is not doing too well, and keeping up is a bit expensive. You see, as a celeb, you need to grace an occasion and as such have to look good—the dress, the shoes, the accessories etc, they all come at a cost. It is expensive to keep up that status so not getting anything from your workplace is not healthy. I for one, I have invested so much into my brand and I have to keep it up but where is the income thus the need to look elsewhere to shore it up?
I sat down one day and thought about my interest in broadcast journalism and I said why not give it a try too, to get busy and earn something more. That is why I am currently at GHOne as a reporter. It is just another aspect of me that I am putting to use,” Lebene said.

She added that so far, she has had good reviews…

“it has been great, feedback has been amazing, the team support and encouragement have been wonderful. I currently have a segment on the morning show, GH Today called Citizen Watch, where I go out and ask people what their thoughts are on some issues affecting society.”

She also advised her colleague actors not to depend solely on only acting for survival. “From my experience, if you are into acting and that is your main source of income currently, it will be of a little bother. Acting is a good venture but currently earning a keep from it solely isn’t the best.”

Victoria intends to still pursue acting. She however mentioned she will only accept scripts with good messages.

“I will not take any role just because I need it or I want to earn an income, no, it has to be one that will impact the society positively. A script that will give me exposure, one that will be screened in other regions or countries to expose my talent. So I am currently selective of the kind of scripts I get.”

Victoria holds a Human Resource Management Degree from Zenith University.
