Shewit Kebede, an Ethiopian actress, was interviewed. Shewit Kebede is an actress best known for her role in the film Ye Wendoch Guday (2007). If the urge to perform is motivated by a passion for the art and is accompanied by some talent, then sure, that passion will more than compensate for a lack of talent. I’ve always maintained that skill is never (or almost never) the primary factor in casting decisions.
There are dozens of well-known actors who are unable to act in any way. They are celebrities for a variety of reasons, including their appearance, personality, drive, ego, and so on. They are, nevertheless, stars! I’ve worked with incredibly talented people who couldn’t focus, polish, or work hard enough to be successful. They refuse to study lines, miss practices and do not promote themselves — in other words, they are committed to failure regardless of their ability.
