The 25-year-old actress who hails from Manyu Division in the South West Region says her acting career is usually challenging to be able to rise in the face of so much competition, desperation being new in the field and being paid little or nothing after acting in a movie.

Above all, she has had to deal with, and manage different people at a time. Candylaurice Tanyisong thinks the Cameroon Film Industry has a lot of potential, talent and so much more that is yet to be exploited.
With the right circumstances and people put in place, the actress believes they have a great future in the film industry with God’s grace.
