Eunice said she was elated to play the BB role because “it had soul, it had depth and I think that to see all these glamorous ladies! And they are all chasing after men.
“There is a real story behind it; they had a past…a bitter past, a painful past and I was so glad that I was able to portray and have that transpire when you watch the film.”
