Top Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson, has narrated how she nearly went totally blind after she received the leading female role in the movie Material Girl.
She said she heard many of her other colleagues complaining and murmuring about her when she went on set the first day.
Some were asking why she should be given that role, while others gossiped: “Where is she from?”
Being the only known face on set at that time, Yvonne said she did not pay attention to the murmurings and only set out to do her job.
However, after she went home that day, her eyes started becoming dim and she could not see properly.
Yvonne said her eyes became red and her pupil was almost vanishing, and the pain that came with it was unbearable.
Due to this, she said she needed to resort to shades in shooting the movie which did not give a real scene.
Unable to bear the pain any longer, Yvonne said she locked herself up in her room and cried the whole day while seeking spiritual help from God through prayers.
From that day, she started gaining her eyesight and that helped her shoot the movie to the end.
Yvonne said that is the only time he can talk of being attacked spiritually in her career.
