Many Nigerian actors and actresses have giving up acting for other occupations in abroad in search greener pastures such as popular actress, Rita Dominic.

Rita Dominic has revealed on how she gave up acting to become a caregiver in London, United Kingdom.

During her address at the second edition of the Women of Valour Conference in Ghana on Friday, Dominic disclosed that she halted her acting career in 2002, a “dark period” for her.

Dominic said her decision to stop acting and leave Nigeria resulted from personal struggles that resulted in falling out with friends.

“I  had these issues, and I just fell out with some friends I considered family, and I needed to get out of that space for a minute,” she said.

The actress added, “And then I moved to London and then gave up stardom, and then, you won’t believe it. This is something I never told people before, but while in London, I was trying to make ends meet, so I started working in a care home as a caregiver for adults with special needs.”

However, the 48 years old actress said her role as a caregiver gave her joy during her dark moments, having cared for her parents, who battled illness.

She added, “While some view it as a step-down, I don’t. Taking care of others brought me joy and purpose at a time I needed it most because I took care of my mother and father when they were ill.

Dominic has graced the screen in countless films that earned her multiple awards for her outstanding performances.
