Popular Nigerian actress, Kate Henshaw turns 50 today.

To celebrate with her, MyNigeria has compiled some facts that you may not know about the beautiful, sexy actress who has graced your screens for years.

She was paid 30k for her first movie

The talented actress was paid 30,000 naira for her first movie role. This was not bad at all compared to some actors who started from extremely humble beginnings.

"I could remember that I got N30,000 for my first movie role," she said.

She was athlete in secondary school

Kate is one of the popular celebrities who excelled in sports. She was involved in almost every sporting activity in her school.

"I have always been athletic, even in school. I played basketball, I played volleyball, I played hockey, back then when it was still played properly in school. I ran a 100meter race, I did long jump, high jump, and I dance too. So yes, I was an all-around sportsperson.

Anybody that went to the schools that I attended will tell you that I was an all-around sports person," she said during a chat with Independent in 2018.

She wants to be an air hostess

The actress said in an interview with Pulse in 2019 that she wanted to be an air hostess because she loves making others comfortable.

"I love people. I love serving people, helping people, smiling, and asking for coffee or tea? Are you comfortable? You know I just like making people smile, making them happy, serving, you know, I just think it's fun because I love flying too. So maybe I should try it one day I don't know, it's good to have me but I would love to do it," she said.

She failed at politics

Kate contested on the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to represent Calabar Municipal/Odukpani Federal Constituency at the Federal House of Representatives, but she lost.

She loves going to the gym

The actress stressed that she loves to work out a lot. She added that it's part of her daily routine.

"I’m totally an addict, so I am in the gym for two to three hours. My time is my own, so I am not going to work for anybody. And if I’m on location, I will check the time and then work out," she said.
