The actress who has been married to fellow actor Olu Jacobs for over two decades, said on how to ensure a happy home.
“The issues that tend to break marriages are issues that are so small. They are just made to become hydra headed,” she said.
“If you can just realize that you’re approaching things from different perspectives. You say “Potato,” because probably you went to a school on the Island, and then you say “Potahto,” probably you went to school on the mainland.
“So talk about it and if you have to argue about it, argue about it. And then at the end of the argument, make up. But it’s not enough to separate,” she said.
“And I think that’s the point of “Potato Potahto.” That’s the message of the film: we don’t have to separate over those trivial things.”
The movie “Potato Potahto” features the veteran actress as Mrs Wilson, whose recently divorced daughter is sharing a home with her ex husband.
Silva said that the mixture of drama and comedy is what endeared her to the project. She also liked the fact that in the writing of the script, the seriousness of divorce isn’t left out.
“But it’s Easier To Absorb Because It’s Funny,” she said.
“The seriousness of the topic is passed through; you know how you’re giving people bitter medicine and then you sugarcoat it. So it’s easier to swallow.”
