Tamy cherishes acting role
SONGSTRESS Tamy Moyo has cherished her debut movie acting role, describing it as awesome but challenging.
While she is making it on the music front, Tamy is set for the big screen, appearing in the anti-poaching movie Gonarezhou The Movie by award-winning filmmaker Sydney Taivavashe.
The movie has received recognition of the biggest African American film festival in the United States, Pan African Film Festival, being nominated for Best First Feature Narrative and a world premiere set for February 17 and 21st.
Tamy said the role pushed her out of her usual self, appearing as a village girl named Sarah an experience she enjoyed.
“It was awesome but challenging and at times we had to wake up early for some scenes. I got to experience another life, a life in the village as a village girl. I made new friends, met new people. I’m sure I nailed it,” she said.
In the movie, she got to work with stars among them Eddie Sandifolo and Charles Muzemba which she said made it easy for her to adapt.
“Working with veterans was a great experience. It made it easy for me as I would just go and consult,” she said.
Taivavashe, said Tamy was perfect for the role because of her music background.
He took the songstress for some acting lessons, having her feature in a short film for her to adjust to the film setting.
Tamy joins the growing list of female musicians who are venturing into acting among them Pah Chihera, Bethan Pasinawako and Faith Candy.
