I heard about Talking Dolls first from a friend Tamara Komboye,
Talking Dolls is a controversial story which will definitely not only be a movie to watch once at the cinema but one to watch over and over again. A movie full packed with life lessons for everyone both old & young regardless of your ethnicity, religion or background.
Wow, what can I say about the cast and crew. It was an amazing experience working with each and everyone & definitely will jump at the chance to work with the Producer again.
The script is mind blowing as it includes (drinking, drug use, sexual assaults) and one strength of the story is its portrayal of infidelity and typical situations we are faced with or know someone who may have been in similar situation. My goal was to interpret Ireti’s character, and I loved working with my favorite actors in the industry, people who are great fun to work with yet also extremely talented. This is the best cast I have ever worked with and I think we are creating something really special.

My London experience on the set of ''TALKING DOLLS'' was a great one filled with learning and patience and more like creating a new family bonded by movie making. Everyone, except Daniel L Daniel, I met for the first time but we kicked it off real good. Despite the ups and downs with the production we were able to scale it through easily. There was understanding and mutual respect on set. The producers did their best to ensure everyone was well taken care of. The director ensured he got the best out of his artiste and crew members. The DP was a delight to work with because she brought her A game. The technical department were on all force to tackle the production. A big shout out to Marc Adebesin for anchoring this production and giving it his best. I know everyone did their best. We leave the rest to God. I pray for a great and earth breaking picture that will make the rounds in cinemas home and abroad, in festivals and otherwise. One Love

It takes a whole lot to make a great movie, but for me, I believe there are two key requirements that can not be compromised - 1. A Superb Script/ Screenplay. 2. A Great Team (Cast/Crew)... Talking Dolls has both! I rejected three jobs to be on this project, Its probably one of the best decisions I've made this year!

I heard about Talking Dolls first from a friend Tamara Komboye, when I heard who was directing and who was producing I whined that I had to be on it. I hadn't even gotten the script or knew what the story was about but I just knew I wanted it.
So when the call came in from the Director, asking if I would be interested, I jumped on it like a fat kid in a candy store. I was at the other end of town when I got the script, and immediately started reading it on the train. I just couldn't stop. Playing Kennedy was refreshing for me and it's a character out of my comfort zone. Totally loved it. The cast and crew? Jeeezzz even when my scenes were I just couldn't stay away. Sooo much fun... sooo interesting... soo fresh. By far one of the movie sets I've been on in London and probably in 2016. Talking Dolls is so dear to me cause it has so many career firsts for me.
A great script to read, I look forward to the delivery of every cast on this movie as I personally have high expectation on it's impact in the Nollywood Industry here in London.
With a start studded cast, I could not say no to the producer when I got the call. It was an Epic experience for me on set. My best time on set was when the director said cut and I just wanted to continue ......you would not understand this unless you watch this movie...lol
“l decided to be part Talking Dolls because i found the script intriguing as it highlighted various tabooed subjects in our society that many people shy away from. Incest, promiscuity, passions and regrets.
My role as a costumier was interesting because i had the opportunity to work with new people who had very different personalities. At worst the pressure came on at times but in the end, it was worth the sweat.”
“ Talking Dolls the movie is one of the first few projects i have done since coming back to work, and I have to say it made me realize and appreciate the reason why I am in this industry and why I love this job so much. Beautiful cast fantastic crew smart producer and an amazing director! Am truly proud to be part of the wonderful production. ”
