Veteran Actress, Liz Benson who makes a return to Nollywood after a 14-year absence says being an evangelist was pivotal in motivating her to accept the script, especially because of its theme which championed and brought to fore the societal cause of ‘creating awareness about Breast Cancer.

‘With my status as a pastor, I have to be critical on the movies or productions I appear in. As someone that counsels people in church, I identify with the challenge women face here as I have had to encourage women to go for a scan when they tell me their health challenges. Living Funeral is a great movie as it xrays the scourge of breast cancer among women‘, Liz Benson says.

Orode who makes her debut as a producer, surprised everyone back in November, 2011 when she got married at the age of 22.

The movie titled ‘Living Funeral‘ is a project under the auspice of Orode’s Pink Pearl Breast Cancer Foundation andwas premiered October 27, 2013.

The Udoka Oyeka-directed movie has since been nominated in eight categories at the Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards (AMVCA) which will hold on Saturday, March 8, 2014.
