Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw has disclosed why she made a vow to never ever be late again when its time to shoot a scene for a movie.

The star is known to be one of the few actresses who are always on time even if production runs late or other actors arrive late.

In an interview on Inkblot's Meet and Greet podcast show, she said, "As I was working at Ikeja A Plant, a friend of mine who worked in Coca-Cola sent me a card saying “Shey you’re an actress? Your people are doing movie award,” it was held at the Glover Memorial Hall, 1996. So I went. I was seated beside Ramsey (Nouah), Opa (Williams), and other people.

"We were just gisting gisting and it was Obesere who had gone up to announce my category. They didn’t even tell me I was nominated. So they announce “Best Upcoming Actress Nominees are”, and he calls my name in a funny way like Henshwow which that’s not my name so I was still gisting with Ramsey. He kept saying Kate Henshwow, Kate Henshwow. Ramsey just tapped me “Kate, Kate, it’s you!” I was like “Where? How?” I started shaking, crying. I still remember wearing my polka-dot dress and going to receive it. I was shaking, I had come back to my seat.

"Then Opa Williams came to me and said “I have a movie I want to shoot. I need you in my office tomorrow by 8am, but I’ve told another actress to come” and I found out later that it was Uche Osotule. He said “anybody who comes first will get the role.

"So, he said 8, I got there 8:15, she was there at 8. That was how I lost out and I vowed that day never ever in my life to be late for anything again."
