Pascaline Edwards’ Autobiography

Born in Lome, Togo in 1970, Pascaline Edwards, Ghana’s Best Female Actress (2002) is considered a diva in the Ghanaian movie scene, with over a hundred movies to her credit in a professional career spanning a little over two decades. She has also acted in a number of Nollywood (Nigerian) films. Currently, she combines her career as an actress with managing her film acting training school, Film Techniques, and one of Ghana’s top fitness gyms, GeoDan Health and Fitness Centre.

Barely out of her teens, Pascaline honed her acting skills on stage with a number of drama performances in the early 1990s as a member of one of Ghana’s top acting groups, the Talent Drama Group.

With acting coming to her naturally, she won and featured as the lead actress role in The Leopard’s Choice (1992). Her first appearance on the silver screen began with the film Djablo (1993).
She went back to stage acting and her major break came with a series of classic performances when Emancipation Day celebrations to commemorate the abolition of slavery were introduced in Ghana in 1995.

She played the role of Fathia Nkrumah, wife of Ghana’s first President Dr Kwame Nkrumah in a drama staged during the celebrations and played the role of the wife of former slave trader who was active in abolition of the slave trade in the drama Abolition (1995).

It was her portrayal of a cute, sexy student, who took advantage of a friend’s trust to seduce her friend’s Father and destabilise a very happy family, in Stab in the Dark (1997) that took her film career to a new level and projected her into stardom.
After a series of Ghanaian productions, her career took another major boost when she began acting major roles in Nollywood (Nigerian) movies with Journey of the Dead (2001).

With a professional career logging a little over two decades, the versatile actress fluent in English, French and a number of local Ghanaian dialects, set up a film acting institute, Film Techniques in 2007, to share her rich experience with young actors and actresses, who have the flair and passion to act.
