“Clash” was her first feature film released first on Netflix Nigeria and went to the #1 spot for 19 consecutive days, it was then released worldwide on Netflix this past July 2021. You can watch for her in upcoming episodes of Paranormal Hotline and in another lead role in Homicide: Hours To Kill.

Not satisfied with being just in front of the camera Wendy debuts as a director/producer in the short documentary Finding Orlean about a woman’s search for her birth mother and the unbelievable real-life twist that happened along the way, due to be released later this year.

Which ‘hood are you in?

I have lived in Cityplace for three years now. I love how close to the waterfront it is, delicious, versatile food, lots of wonderful, friendly neighbours!

What do you do?

When I’m not auditioning, acting or creating films, I work at a dental office, I’m grateful to have the flexibility and understanding to take time off for acting.

What are you currently working on?

I am in the early planning stages of a sequel to Finding Orleen. My short doc follows my step-sister’s journey (she was adopted) to find her birth mother. This real-life Canadian story unfolded in our lives and had the most bizarre real-life plot twist! All three of my children are blood-related to her-just wild! That film will hit the festival circuit soon. Now that she has found her birth mother, she is starting a quest to find her birth father-so we will document on film, that journey. I’m so excited to begin production meetings. Also to see what happens with Finding Orleen – it’s such a compelling story.

Where can we find your work?

The easiest place to find my work is on Netflix & YouTube.
