Nancy Gill harboured desires of appearing since childhood however being a daughter of defence personnel, she knew it gained’t be acceptable for her household. But the teen continued brushing her abilities discreetly and took a job as a cabin crew to finally give wings to her appearing aspirations.

“From modelling, theatre, television to now web shows I graduated taking baby steps. I feel blessed that I got to start with a role of dacoit in the show Chidiyaghar, a cop in OTT series Shubh Mangal Mein Dangal and then got an opportunity to play the character of a bar girl in one of my future projects. I have always believed that when desperately wanting something, the universe conspires to make it happen. It may take a little longer but it will eventually reach you, it’s only that one has to work hard towards it with much passion,” tells the actor.

Gill shares she needed to take an extended route to meet her appearing dream. “I hail from Chandigarh and my parents wanted me to become a doctor. Whereas I always wanted to become an actor but knew I won’t get permission for the same. I participated in all possible extra-curricular activities. I prepared for medical school but could not get through, then after graduating in science I took a job in an airline in Delhi and started flying across the globe,” she tells.

On board a chit-chat with Bollywood singer Sunidhi Chauhan fuelled her perception. “I was often meeting actors on flights. After a chat with her I realised how she was following her passion and it reaffirmed my faith in myself. I broke the news to my family but then slowly they accepted my career choices and I came to Mumbai. I did my first TV show while I was working as a cabin crew. Then I got an offer for the daily soap Neeli Chatri Wali but I had by then realised I needed to learn more so I left my job.”

Gill skilled herself in appearing. “I did workshops with acting-coach Saurabh Sachdeva sir, another in Pondicherry, learnt kathak in Mumbai, worked as crew intern in Baaghi-2, did a year-long training in kalaripayattu in Goa and staged a play Kya Karoon O Ladies. Print and TV commercials kept me afloat and I got a chance to work with Ranveer Singh and Akshay Kumar sir.”

In her final present she performed the elder sister to Ada Khan. “I play her sister-a police officer who has to unfortunately stall her marriage as lockdown gets imposed. Then I also shot for an OTT series but cannot divulge about it much. Next, I am hoping to shoot for a Punjabi film in my home state as soon as we are in the final stage of talks. Sadly, my father passed-away by the time my acting career started shaping up. I am sure he would have been proud of me!”
