At 40 plus, delectable actress, Rita Dominic, is one actress so many
people are waiting for her wedding bell to ring. Interestingly, not
just a few have tried to decode who her 'Romeo' is, Riri (as she is
fondly called) has managed to keep her private life so private.
But then, in a recent chat with Saturday Beats, Rita reiterated that
she would soon have a child. Last year, during a Facebook live chat,
she spoke on her plans for motherhood. She told her fans that she
loved children and she was working on getting one.
"You know I don't normally answer questions about my private life but
my child is coming soon," the actress told Saturday Beats. The movie
producer refused to answer questions about her relationship.
Known to have featured in about four movies with fellow actor, Femi
Jacobs, some Nigerians have speculated that an amorous relationship
may be brewing between both thespians but the actress described their
relationship as platonic, stating that Jacobs was just her "buddy" and
"Acting in those movies with Femi was not really planned except his
feature in 'The Meeting' which was his first major film. We held an
audition and he impressed us most for the role. Maybe after other
producers watched the movie, they liked us together and began to cast
us alongside each other. Femi and I are friends and when you are close
to someone, it helps with the on-screen chemistry. We are buddies,"
Although she is known to always wear a smile, the actress further told
Saturday Beats that whenever she watches a particular movie, she
cannot hold back the tears in her eyes.
"Whenever I watch '76,' I find it hard to hold my tears. I have
watched it many times and each time, I cried. The movie is so
emotional and I still connect with my character in a way. Each time I
see the character I played there, it feels I am still the person.
"It was fun, as we were in Ibadan for six months shooting '76.'
Ramsey, Chidi Mokeme are people I have known from way back, so it was
like working with my brothers. They are very talented as well, and for
me, I always like to act with actors who understand their roles and
other roles. In acting, you have to understand that you get what you
do to other actors," she said.
