Filmmaker says acting is not about physical looks, illustrates with Lupita Nyong'o

According to Lancelot Imaseun, Lupita Nyong isn't pretty, but her talent speaks for her. Watch video.

Lancelot Imasuen alongside with multiple-award winning actor Majid Michel delivered a powerful lecture on 'what it takes to succeed as an actor' in Houston, Texas

While training and lecturing the aspiring actors here in Houston, Lancelot said, it is not the shape or looks that will take an aspiring actor to the next level, rather talent, and the "grace" factor of being accepted by the public as a believable actor.

Lancelot used Lupita Nyong’o as an example of what it takes to become a successful star actress;

“Those of you that think that I have to be the finest girl.. The girl has proven that eh.. Breast she no get, Face, fine, she no get.. Fine she no get..Bobbie, she no get.. but listen to me, when it is time for business to pay you.. It is you that is being looked for.”
