Veteran Nigerian actress, Liz Benson, who has been off the screens for about six years since she got married and started her ministerial work, has returned with a role in a Nollywood new movie.

The scintillating star is part of the movie entitled, “Busted,’’ produced by Lisa Onu and Face Onu, which would be premiered on May 21 at the Oriental Hotel, Lagos.

Busted tells the love story of a gay couple. It is the story of a girl, (Queen Edwards), who was born into a reputable home but the father’s high handedness and mother’s lackadaisical attitude led her to a maid, who lured her into lesbianism.

She continued the act into adulthood dating and breaking up with different ladies. In the process, Queen fell in love with a lady called Blessing, who got into the act for financial gains.

The movie also featured veterans such as Kate Henshaw, Paul Obazele, TV host, IK Ogbonna and other new talented actors in the movie industry.

Liz Benson, one of the screen divas in the early days of Nollywood, later retired and went into evangelism.

The talented actress has also received nominations for Best Supporting actress for her role in “Living Funeral” movie.

Since 2007, the actress has only done two interesting Nollywood movies (Dry & Living Funeral). Dry is a movie directed by Nollywood actress Stephanie Linus nee Okereke while Living Funeral was directed by Udoka Oyeka.

Similarly, Obazele, who also acted in many soap operas’ on National Television in the 90s, has been off the screen for some years.
