Funke Akindele recounts getting food on set on her first meeting with Kate Henshaw 22 years ago

Veteran Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele has on her Instagram page, while celebrating her colleague, Kate Hensaw on her 48th birthday, taken a long walk down memory lane as she recounted their first meeting in 1997.

According to the mother of twins, she first met Kate Henshaw on set of classic movie, ‘Naked Wire’ which was also her first experience before the camera.


She revealed how Kate Henshaw upheld her when she seemed nervous while acting – she also shared how she couldn’t get food even though she was quite hungry, until Kate stepped in.

She wrote;

I’m sure @k8henshaw can’t remember the story I’m about to tell…… In 1997 when i started my acting career i met @k8henshaw on the set of Naked Wire. That was my first experience before the camera so i was so nervous.

I played the role of a waitress who was asked by the lead actor to tell the lead actress (Kate Henshaw) that he loved her. Immediately the director called ACTION,i started shaking because i was so nervous. Kate held my hands and told me that i could do it.


After the scene, i was so hungry but wasn’t given food as (waka pass concern nau ) Kate saw me waiting and she went to tell them to give me food.
