The article continues as Emily describes her experience working with Stella Maris.

Gyan has had success beyond her work as a Victory Belle although much of it seems to revolve around the same era.

Gyan revealed that the experience helped challenge her in the techniques of film acting. She says, “I’ve always been a stage actress, but performing for the camera was exhilarating and I learned so much. We had an incredibly talented and supportive team working on the production and it was a really safe space to create.” It seems her hard work has paid off. “Slow Dance with Me” is available on Amazon Prime and is currently enjoying 4.3/5 stars on Amazon and a 9.1/10 rating on IMDB.
