Here's how the conversation about the whole thing went between Lilian Afegbai and Beverly Osu:

Lilian Afegbai: Do you think that you're being stereotyped in the industry?

Beverly Osu: I mean, I feel like the stereotype thing, I feel like 2 years ago I broke that and I had to starve myself to break that. In the sense that, you call me for the jobs that I know you want me to be a fine girl, somebody's girlfriend, I no do! You call me, say you want me to kiss - I'm not doing it! And it's way beyond the money or anything. It's not as if I'm balling so I don't need your money. It's creativity. Even if you're giving me as little as a stipend, I will want to be in it if I know this is going to take my career to the next level or push me beyond my limits of what I see myself doing. So been there done that, it gets boring. Do you understand? And again you know me, I'm not about plenty plenty. I just want to do one thing and kill it. So I think I broke that and I'm still trying to break more so I can get to where I want to go to. Because if I keep packing all these things because oh, it's portfolio, portfolio of the same thing is boring. So far so good. I feel like the world is ready for me now. I can't wait to explore myself to the highest and acting is my happy place. It's my home away from home.

Lilian Afegbai: I think I'm actually where you were 2 years ago now. Because obviously I took a break from industry to find stability in terms of financial whatever. And then now I'm back, and I notice people want to keep giving me these roles of "fine girl, big ass, short skirt", and I'm like mm mm, I can't keep doing that, I'm way beyond that. And also I feel like like there's so much more I have. So now if you're not going to put me on the table, I'm going to create my own table. So that's where I'm at right now. What's your dream role right now?

Beverly Osu: I want to be a Bond girl. I really want something very active. Like action action. Let me jump fences.

Lilian Afegbai: Can you jump fences?

Beverly Osu: You know me na!

Lilian Afegbai: My yansh no go allow me jump fence [laughs]. E go just hook. I go just fall. If them say make I even land, the way the landing the yansh go land for air. I no fit jump [laughs]
