I bet you didn’t know this person is Nigerian…

Just looking at this beauty on face value, you would never guess that she’s Nigerian…but her name sure does give her away…who is she? She’s none other than Ashley Madekwe.

Madekwe was born on December 6th 1981 in London, England, to a half Nigerian half Swiss father and an English mother. What is she most known for? Well, that would be her role in the popular 2011 TV series, Revenge as well as her previous roles in Venus and Cassandra’s Dream.

Talking about her role of Ashley Davenport, she is quoted to have said, “On the ‘Revenge’ set, even if they’re not showing my feet, I’ll still wear my heels because it gets me in the feeling of Ashley Davenport”. Hmmm, so Ashley played Ashley in “Revenge”? It must have been easy getting accustomed to her role name.

Other quotes she’s made that’ll give you an insight to her personality include, “when the weather is really hot, I tend to live in denim cut-offs”, “nobody is all good or all bad”, “I hate in when people are impolite to waiters or to the valet guy or the guy in the supermarket. There’s no need for that; it doesn’t cost anything to be polite.” What a down-to-earth young lady? Oh, she’s also married to Iddo Goldberg…sorry men!
