When did you have your big breakthrough?
blessing Lughano: I had a coming to Jesus moment. I don’t know how to put it. There was this week when I went to audition for five roles; three commercials and two TV shows, and I was sure I would get picked. During my dry season, I bought books and got myself an acting coach who taught me a lot.
I remember calling my dad to tell him the good news about my auditions. But he was driving at the time and promised to call me back. I remember it was on a Thursday. Come Friday, no calls from the casting guys. No call from my dad. Saturday nothing. Then on Sunday, an aunt calls me and tells me that my dad passed on.
About an hour later my phone starts ringing. It was a casting director asking for my measurements, I had been picked for the role! That day I got all the five jobs. That’s when my career began – on the worst possible day for me. I think my dad got up there and told God “take care of my guy.”
BLESSING LUGHANO:What has been your most embarrassing moment?
My most embarrassing moment is when I went to do my film. You know I’d never been to Europe. I’m working with this guy and he’s like “lets do lunch” and I’m like “there’s free food over there”. And he’s like “No, no, there’s this restaurant that’s really good. Come I take you.” So we ended up in this really posh restaurant and being the ordinary guy that I am, I ordered everything which looked good on the menu.
In Kenya when someone takes you out for lunch they pay. No one told me in Europe when they say “let’s do lunch”, what they mean is, you pay your bill, they pay theirs. So when the bill came, this white guy pushed it over to me to pay for what I’d eaten. I told him that I didn’t have cash on me and that he should pay for me and I would refund him later. I thought he had forgotten, but then the next day he comes asking for his money in front of everyone.
