Even before pursuing a career in nursing, Fokum Regina otherwise called Fokum Me Princess Achirimbi had always been convinced her childhood dreams of getting on a movie set would come to fruition some day. Perhaps she had to round off her career as a nurse before getting on set and within this time younger girls invaded the seventh art. "That rather spurred me and I was bent on taking the challenge to have older women too act," she told TIPTOPSTARS at an actors' guild meeting recently. "Acting is not only meant for young girls," the elderly actress stated emphatically.

Also inspired by the Nigerian film industry, Princess Achirimbi courageously hit the set for the first time two yeas ago. But her breakthrough seems to be The Majority, a Niche Entertainment production launched a couple of months ago. Having put up a convincing performance in the said movie, she has been inspired to do many more films and work with younger actresses. "My relationship with them is quite cordial, the girls give me the respect I deserve and I do respect them too," Princess Achirimbi explained.

The retired nurse who also runs the Queen Mother's Orphange is today a full-blown movie actress and that is why she would pose as such in any instance. Recently, she was spotted at an actors' guild meeting in Muyuka, South West region of Cameroon joining her counterparts to defend the course of actors. She was accompanied to the come-together by her producers of Tiko-based Niche Entertainment that is fast becoming a film production house to reckon with. She has also featured in Zintaeh and Complex Games.

Princess Achirimbi who also did drama in her early years hopes to get to greater heights in acting. The 1.64m-tall actress is coming on set at a time many elderly people in Cameroon are beginning to consider acting. It is hoped she would fly the flags of Cameroon at international level just like Patience Ozokwor, Rita Edochie, Ngozi Ezeonu and others have done for Nigeria. She loves cooking, tking care of children and working on the farm.
