Born to a businesswoman mother and an entrepreneur father. The name FAR came after she got married and has become her signature.

Funlola depicted quite a number of characters in the new photos, some of the characters include, a boxer, widow, drug addict, woman in black, sexy b**ch, glamazon, amongst others.

One of Funlola’s birthday message as shared on social media reads:

“It’s another birthday of mine and I give thanks to God Almighty for Life, Love, Family, Health and of course, Career! A successful one worth celebrating.💃🏽🎉💃🏽I like to say I’ve been acting all my life but paid to do so since 1996. 🎬🎭🎬That’s practically 23 years!! You’d agree that my work profile would not be memorable or interesting to fans if I’d been playing the same role in each project I partake in. 🙌🏾👍🏽🙌🏾 This year, I’m celebrating my range as an Actress as I urge others to stretch themselves and step out of their comfort zone! In life, challenges shape and strengthen us as individuals. 💪🏽✊🏾💪🏽As an actor, challenging roles shape and strengthen your ability to interpret more roles and convey emotions.
Be you an up-coming, established or seasoned actor, DO NOT allow your self to be type cast. You can actually politely decline till something different/more challenging comes along! It’s not arrogance, it says you take yourself and your craft seriously.

Exert yourselves physically and emotionally, take on a new language or accent, add/lose weight for your role, research those living with disabilities before playing a disabled person. Get in shape before playing an athlete etc……..Do your research and go for it!! ❤️❤️❤️. In the past year, I have had the pleasure of playing roles that had me speaking both Hausa(King Of Boys) and Igbo(Walking with Shadows). In season 6 of MTV Shuga, I played the cantankerous local Yoruba VP of a secondary school. Whilst maintaining the role of Brenda(Fierce Biz Exec.) on AMTinsel. It is a thing of pride to see an actor convincingly play different characters.

For my birthday shoot, I decided to go beyond the everyday glam looks……….I chose to have fun with roles……….Enjoy! #FARplaysROLES #GoFARwithActing #HappyBirthdayFAR #Actor #Talent #Passion #Nollywood #Hollywood #God #MyTime #MyJourney #MyWay #FunlolaAofiyebiRaimi
