FLORATelevision was a rare commodity in the Pacesetters and Mills and Boons days. Pacesetters was a West African writers' series with short but irresistibly interesting stories covering a wide range of themes. Mills and Boons was a huge collection of American love; espionage and investigative stories. Hardly could young boys and girls in the 80s afford to miss them - so too was Florence Nyama a fan of Pacesetters and Mills and Boons. She read huge volumes of these stories and enjoyed them.

But young Florence's attachment to these novels did not only end in reading them. She got really inspired by protagonists whom she could visualize acting each time she held tight to a story. Before long, her mind became a spacious nursery for acting ambitions. "Sometimes I would see myself playing one of the roles in the book and this inspired the more," she told TIPTOPSTARS in an online interview.

Today the Cameroonian actress, based in Tiko in Fako Division of the South West region is fast becoming a big name in the industry. Having been on set for 10 years now, Nyama has hit the mark by pleasing consumers of some of her films. Her wonderful performance did not escape the vigilance of members of the 2010 Fako Film Festival jury who prided the artist with a second best actress award. "That was my first participation in a film festival," the Niche Entertainment rising movie star.

But what makes Nyama a good actress? The actress who hails from Bafia in the Centre region replied : "I deal with people from all walks of life given that I'm a teacher and that makes me able to interpret any role I'm given. As a matter of fact I'm a versatile actress. Also, acting is my passion and I enjoy sending across messages. So each time I have the opportunity, I do my utmost best to o deliver and please my audience."

Married wih two children, the 1.67m-tall actress at times faces the challenge of having to manage time to handle domestic chores and movie activities, but tries to do that judiciously.

Nyama has featured in several Cameroonian movies including Faced With the Past, Endless Rules, Complex Games, Desperate Arrest, Women Court of Justice, Lady in Red and most recently in The Majority. She dreams to feature in a Hollywood movie some day. She is also endowed with other skills such as singing, dancing and decoration.
