Nigerian born Hollywood actress, Yvoone Orji is saving herself for marriage, as she explains her dedication to her Christian faith in a new interview.
Although her character Molly indulges in lots of sex in HBO’s Insecure, the 33 year old is happy to talk about the subject in hopes that it’ll help people understand, telling People:
‘[I told them] it would take me eight years to become a doctor, but give me eight years to make it in entertainment. And I’m happy to say, we did it in seven,’ Yvonne said of her parents hopes that she’d become a doctor
‘I wasn’t going to hide it just because I’m on TV. I’m open, because why not? I’m grounded in who I am…Before any of [the fame] happened, I sat down with myself and with God and thought, when I make it, how do you want me to represent you while I’m here?’….’It was like, OK, I know why I’m here. It’s to make you proud.’
