How Old is Marilyn Nnadebe?

On March 29, 1990, Marilyn Nnadebe (age 32) took birth in London, UK. According to sources, Mary’s father and mother are Nigerian immigrants who came to England before the 90s. While growing up, Nnadebe used to dream of becoming an actress one day, but she was afraid of the uncertainty of being part of the show business because of the ruthless competition that prevails.

Her parents were of the opinion that she must get a college degree first before embarking on a journey to search for acting opportunities; so that she would have a career to fall back on.

The passionate actress did the same; she kept learning acting and participated in numerous theatre shows, but at the same time, she paid attention to her academics. Eventually, she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in accounting and finance.
