Nigerian movies: The best of Regina Daniels on Showmax
She’s the talk of the town, and Regina Daniels’ talent knows no boundaries. Check out this collection of her movies on Showmax.
Regina Daniels may only be 20 years old, but the beautiful actress is already a Nollywood OG. She followed her mother’s footsteps into acting 12 years ago on the set of Marriage of Sorrows and has gone on to become one of the most influential actors operating from Eastern Nigeria.
She credits her mum for her success. “I started acting through the help of my mother some years ago,” she told The Sun. “I didn’t really see myself reaching this stage, but my mother suffered to make sure I got to this stage in life.”
Daniel became the talk of the town last year when she got married to billionaire Ned Nwoko. Google says she was the most searched actor in the country, topping superstars like Ini Edo and Genevieve Nnaji. While the non-Nollywood matter may have brought her more popularity, we want to remind you why she is one of the best young actors operating in Nollywood.
