Today, we’re announcing the newest addition to A Forgotten Place, Cameroonian actress Constance Ejuma. The LA based actress has had plenty of roles on TV and in films, but she also isn’t waiting for the industry to open up opportunities for her. Constance is active in bringing stories that she cares about to the screen, most recently seen in her film Ben & Ara, an independent film she produced and stars in, which is just beginning its festival circuit. In it, Constance plays a Muslim graduate student who falls in love with a fellow student, who happens to be agnostic.
Constance is the type of actor that we’re happy to have on our team… talented, committed to her craft, and a champion of untold stories. As we build a Pan-African project, we’re pleased to add Cameroon to the growing list of nations from which our team hails!
Meet Constance below. And talent… keep following to find out when casting sessions are coming to your region (soon!)

I’m a self described: Humanist, artist and African soul.
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Favorite movie as a kid: I didn’t really have one, though I do remember loving Bollywood movies as a kid in Cameroon.
My favorite moment working on set was: When the lead of a popular TV show I was guest starring on tried to play matchmaker for me and another member of the cast.
If I could work with any director it would be: I have a soft spot for Lars Von Trier. I like the provocative nature of his films and the fact that he’s not afraid to push buttons no matter how outrageous the circumstances in his stories.
I joined the cast of A Forgotten Place because: I’m interested in telling stories that normally wouldn’t get told.
The most exciting thing about this project is: It sheds a little light on an important part of Nigerian history. It’ll also be a great opportunity to collaborate with some incredibly talented people on the continent.
A message to the audience: Stories about our history help us understand the world we live in today; and with that understanding comes an idea of what the future holds and how we can change it.
