Kissing scene with Iyanya took many tries – Ex-BBN housemate, Diane Russet

Days ago, Diane was captured on camera, passionately kissing singer, Iyanya, in a new movie, she acted and produced ,titled ‘The Therapist’ .
While speaking with Sunday Scoop, Diane recounted her experience shooting that particular scene.
The reality star said:
“As an actor, one’s job is to be the character and deliver it perfectly. We had so many takes on that scene and I am happy it came out just how we wanted it. So far, the reviews are amazing and encouraging,” she said.
And on filmmaking as a first love, she said, “Filmmaking has always been my first love and passion, asides from my business. Producing this short film is not only a dream come true, it is the realisation of the power of believing in oneself,”
Diane also spoke about life after BBNaija, “Life has been good so far. I thank God for his mercies and grace. In all honesty, I didn’t expect to get this far, this quickly. Thanks to my management and my team for working with me to achieve these milestones. I always say it takes a village to see every outcome we put out to the world,” she said.
On her weirdest experience with a fan, Russet said, “Just some days ago, I had a two-day pop-up sales tour in Festac, Lagos, with a cosmetic brand which I work with as a brand ambassador. When I was coming back from where I went to eat, a fan jumped on me and I almost fell down. It was a very weird experience. She literally stuck by my side the whole day. It is really humbling to experience such great love. The support my fans give me is indescribable. I am thankful to God for giving them to me. Without them, there is no me.”
