Who am I? Where am I from? & how come I live in Oslo?

I often get asked these questions, smiling.
So it has occurred to me that for you to relate to me in any way, perhaps you too are wondering who this new blogger is!
Ok, so let me start from the beginning, my name is Fumi Desalu-Vold. My birthday is April the 16th, & I'm an Aries.
I was born in Moscow, Russia. (hard to believe, but true, plus it makes 4 great conversation, yes!)
I'm half Nigerian and half Gambian.

My name is Japanese and the full name is Fumiko, it means "Empress".
My Mother went to Asia and fell in looooooooooove with the name, so when she had me (smiling) that's the nameI got!
Below are some pictures of my fabulous mother in the far East during the 60's
having a wonderful time!

Here is my Mummykinns in the middle, she hadn't met my Dad yet,
that was going to be a few years yet!

My Mama 3rd to the left. Wasn't she GLAMOROUS? Love the outfit honey!

My Mum again 3rd from the left. Just look at those amazing parasols.

My Mummy & her best friend.
Alright back to me, she laughs.
It's also a Nigerian name , from the Yoruba tribe and it means "God has given me joy". Coooooool.
I grew up in a family that travelled the world a lot, mainly b'cos my mum became a diplomat, & it was such a treat to see different parts of the world, it REALLY opens up your eyes & mind so much.
Anyway I spent most of my childhood in Scotland, Glasgow. Then relocated to Lagos, Nigeria in my teens.
I left for college in London when I was 21. But.................. NOT b4 I won the "Super Model of Africa" competition. Woohoo.
Alright guys pay attention, b'cos this is where the fun starts, she laughs.
So I set off to what I thought was going to be just 4 yrs of University in good ol' swinggin London, but destiny had other plans.
I got signed with Elite model agency as well as going to University full time.
Once I graduated, I became the muse of Japanese designer Yuki Yamamoto full time.
My agency then shipped me off to New York and it became my base. Ha det bra London,
HelloNew York!
It was a FABULOUS LIFE, a wonderful time that I look back on with the fondest of memories.

Through my modeling I started getting lots of beauty commercials & television work in Los Angeles.
I was in loooooooooooooove, the weather and the palm trees were so irresistible, i just had to live here!
And so i moved from New York to Los Angeles.
Now I had 2 careers, modeling & acting. My modeling helped me sooooooo much with my acting and I learned so much about the entertainment biz in LA.
I did everything from, Television shows, Feature films, Period films, sitcoms (Ugly Betty), Independent films, student films, commercials, music videos and the list goes on and on. It was an AMAZING experience. Ha!
I strongly recommend, anybody who wants to know how the industry works, to go!!!!!!
You will have an amazing time, and meet theeeeeee most unexpected & interesting people ever!

Vanessa Williams from 'Desperate Housewives'.
But we became friends from the the Tv show, Ugly Betty plus we were both former beauty Queens so we always talked about that, she laughs.

America (Betty), Christopher (Henry), Becki (Amanda) & me.
So this was my life, or so i thought. That is until I met the ...................... love of my life..................& he was from Norway!
Do u c how it's all coming together?
We got married 3 times, ..........Whaaaaaaaaat!...............yep!
The 1st wedding was in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles.
The second was in Lagos, Nigeria.
& the 3rd was in Bergen, Norway.
Last year we relocated from Bergen to Oslo and in the 18 months that I've been in Norway I've appeared in 2 episodes of "Hotel Csar" last year and just finished filming the feature film "Varg Veum - De dde har det ogs godt" which will be in all the theaters comeJanuary of 2012.

With some of the Hotel Csar cast! Do u like the Jackie O shades my darlings?

My character's name was 'Jacqueline Diaz" & she was a Diva!
