Fans of Liz Ameye (formerly known as Liz Benson) would be very excited to hear that the Nollywood legend has announced her return to film acting according to reports.
A few years ago, Liz Benson Ameye took everyone by surprise when she declared that she was quitting acting. By that time, she had become a Christian evangelist.
Liz starred in over 40 Nollywood flicks including Most Wanted, Inheritance, and Diamond Ring. She came into the limelight via the 1993 television soap opera, Fortunes, and the popular home video film, Glamour Girls.
Presently married to Bishop Great Ameye of the Freedom Assembly in Jesse, Ethiope Local Government Area of Delta State, Liz will be appearing in a new Stephanie Okereke movie which focuses on the plight of women afflicted with vesico vaginal fistula in Nigeria.
She revealed that her decision to take the role was largely influenced by fellow actress Stephanie Okereke.
“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.
