Selina has narrated how growing up was hard with her step mum. 

Celestine Gachuhi popularly known as Selina says her childhood was not the best after the death of her mother.

Her dad married another woman who made life miserable for the actress.
She revealed this on her YouTube channel; 

WHEN I WAS IN CLASS FIVE, MY MOTHER PASSED AWAY. IN 2007, MY DAD GOT MARRIED TO MY STEP-MUM. WHEN I FINISHED MY PRIMARY SCHOOL IN NAKURU I WAS TAKEN TO NAROK AND LIFE WAS NOT GOOD AND AS AMAZING AS IT SHOULD BE FOR ANYONE IN HIGH SCHOOL.

I WAS DEPRESSED WITH THE KIND OF LIFE I WAS LIVING AND THE THINGS I WAS GOING THROUGH WITH MY STEP-MUM. GOD’S GRACE IS SUFFICIENT AND I COMPLETED MY STUDIES AND WENT USHAGU.

But how did she get into acting? 

I CAME TO NAIROBI TO LIVE WITH MY SISTER IN A SINGLE ROOM IN KAYOLE. I WORKED FOR A TRAVELLING THEATRE THAT PAID 3,800 FOR THREE MONTHS. THATS HOW IT STARTED, I LOVED BEING ON TV AND MY ROLE MODEL BACK THEN WAS JULIE GICHURU.

Selina is currently one of the biggest actresses in the country serving all kinds of romance goals on screen with Pascal Tokodi (Nelson) on their drama series.

In an exclusive interview last year at the Kalasha awards,  the actress described their relationship outside work as just friendship.

She said; 

“PASCAL AND I ARE VERY GOOD FRIENDS. YES, WE ARE JUST FRIENDS. WE BOTH HAVE PRIVATE LIVES OFF THE CAMERAS”

It’s funny that even on the show “Selina” she has a wicked stepmother, did her personal life help her relate to her on-screen character?
