Nollywood actress, Liz Benson who ruled the silver screen in the early 90s and disappeared into the thin air when the ovation was very loud has resurfaced again. The talented screen diva recently featured in Stephanie Okereke-Linus’ new flick, ‘Dry’.
The flick centres on Vesico Vaginal Fistula (VVF), a disease in women that is common in the northern part of the country. Her return to her first love-acting has been greeted with a lot of excitement, especially among her teeming fans who have missed on screen for a very long time.
Liz Benson started acting as a kid. She rose to fame when she acted in the popular television series, ‘Fortunes’ in 1993, where she played the role of Mrs. Agnes Johnson.
Her role in ‘Glamour Girls’ also stood her out. In 1996, she dumped acting to make peace with her maker. In 2009, she married Bishop Great Emeya at the Rainbow Christian Assembly, Warri, Delta State, which was her second marriage, having lost her first husband, Samuel Gabriel Etim to death.
