I never wanted to be an actress; I knew nothing about acting,” she says.
“When I went with her to the set of Soul City, the director asked me if I could do apart for them. I didn’t hesitate, I did it, and they liked it,” she says. Ivy lands the part on Soul City, playing the grandmother of a patient, and the rest is history.
