The movie star, who was discovered by the writer of Things we do for Love, a popular television series, hinted that she is into acting full-time.
Jackie Appiah is the essence of true African beauty, with a pretty face and dazzling smile. She is among 17 entertainment icons that have been signed by Glo to market their brand.
Speaking on Joy FM?s Super Morning Show last Wednesday in an interview, Jackie Appiah admitted that her dream profession was to be a lawyer, not an actress.
Jackie, who is married
, explained that acting out a love scene which involves kissing; ?Is as complicated as doing a normal scene where you are just talking to somebody?.
She recounted a challenging moment in her career where she played two different characters (twins; Maa Afia and Ashley) in Princess Tyra.
This earned her a nomination at the 2008 African Movie Academy Award (AMAA). She also won an award for her role in Beyonce.
Jackie Appiah?s face can be seen on many billboards and in TV commercials, including a GSMF advert on protection against HIV/AIDS.
She became the face of UB in a promotion she did for them on TV commercials and is currently the face of IPMC.
GSMF was her first TV commercial, and once her pretty face had made an appearance on TV, other deals came her way in no time.
Jackie revealed that there are always crews on location watching the actors and actresses so they do not get emotional during extreme scenes. She added that her husband has no problem with those scenes since she is just acting.
Following her on-screen debut, Jackie went on to create a successful acting career, including starring in the smash hit movie Beyonc?, alongside prominent Ghanaian actors Van Vicker and Nadia Buari. Her role quickly established her as an A-lister in the industry.
Jackie has cashed in on her A-list status as she has endorsed many products and was the spokesperson for an AIDS/HIV awareness campaign in Ghana. She has won numerous awards, including the prestigious Africa Movie Academy Award (AMAA) for best supporting actress in 2007.
