Liz Benson Returns to Nollywood

Liz Ameye (formerly known as Liz Benson) has announced her return to film acting.

A few years ago, the Nollywood screen diva surprised movie fans and her admirers across the country when she quit the stage and declared that she had become a Christian evangelist.

Before then, Liz came into the limelight via the 1993 television soap opera, Fortunes, and the popular home video film,Glamour Girls, She casted in more than 40 films, includingMost WantedInheritance, Day of Atonement, Elastic Limit, Lifted Souls, Yesterday and many others

Now married to Bishop Great Ameye of the Freedom Assembly in Jesse, a community in Ethiope Local Government Area of Delta State, she will be appearing in a new film that focuses on the plight of women afflicted with vesico vaginal fistula in Nigeria.

But fellow thespian Stephanie Okereke had to persuade her to accept a role in the movie.

“Stephanie did a lot to convince me that I would love to be a part of the project after going through the script. I had already decided not to be involved in any film that did not reflect my religious beliefs.

“But after reading the script, I was touched by the message in it. Then I decided to play the part of a nurse in the film”

The film is due for release on the stable of Next Page Production soon.
