The one and only Ghanaian force of nature Lydia Forson has landed on the annual Fashion Issue of SCHICK Magazine and we’re beyond grateful for the top-tier spread.
In this 10th edition, the actress, producer, entrepreneur and activist who is known for promoting body positivity speaks about her style, public perception, getting the E! nomination, her latest project, roots and activism.
“I try to remember that the concept of perfection is a farce and even the people talking negatively about my body, have their own insecurities to deal with,” she says regarding how she’s being perceived by the public.
She spoke on the most-recent projects she’s worked on, a movie called “Us In Between“, which was inspired by true events leading up to the lockdown in Ghana when COVID-19 surge began.
Forson said, “It drained me emotionally and mentally because not only was I embodying the character as an infected nurse, but filming during what was and still is one of the most difficult periods for filmmakers. I had to not only dig deep into my emotions but the fear of being infected regardless of the safety protocols put in place.”
While on how she reacted when she found out she’s earned an E! Nomination, the ‘Isoken’ actress added: “I woke up to the email at midnight and thought it was a prank. I like to believe that it’s just me being myself that may have attracted that sort of attention, and if that is why, it’s all the validation I need to continue being me.”
