Mercy Johnson is one funny and truthful actress.
While speaking with a soft sell magazine, Mercy revealed her first encounter with senior colleague,
and how she had to hide in a car boot just because she was so nervous
to meet her, even though she came there to see her. It’s so hilarious. Her words;
The first time I met her, my friend took me there. When we got to
where she was, I became nervous. I told my friend “no let me hide in
your boot.” And I did. I got into her boot. (laughs) Can you
imagine I came to see her and when I got there I wanted to run back. I
jumped into my friends boot. So, when she came out of the hotel, I could
not see her, I could only hear her voice.

The 2nd time I saw her was on set. When she came down and I met
her she said ahh! Mercy I like your movies and I started crying. I was
in tears of joy. I said Aunty Genevieve, so you watch my movies. She was
sort of embarrassed. Before I met her, she had already known that there
was somebody who was crazily insane about her. She was really nice to
me, receptive. And even whenever we work together she will correct me
and say that thing you did, you could have done it this way.

Usually, in life, you will know somebody, who is more than you. Give
him or her that respect. You can’t fight a battle you can’t win. It does
not make any sense. If somebody is much more than you, there is nothing
as big as you admitting it, and hearing from that person. I didn’t come
into the picture to compete with anybody. I didn’t come into the
picture to rub shoulders or outshine anybody. I came to learn, do it
well, make it and be there.
