Speaking to Guardian Life on her character in Blood Sisters, Ini-Dima Okojie said:
I remember when I was doing research, I read many stories and what struck me the most was people that are victims of abuse, it didn’t matter if they were old or young, black or white, tall or short, and rich or poor. No matter how big or small, they were put in a place where they were victims, where they still fell for this pattern and a lot of them stayed.”
Speaking on the theme of Blood Sisters, Nacny told Guardian Life:
It depends on the scenario. Sometimes it’s self-defense. So, for a man slaughtered, of course, killing a person is never right. But there are scenarios where the person was defending himself. But that’s not my part to tell. The court will always dig into it and see what it is.”
