Regina Askia-Williams, a Nigerian-born, American-based family nurse practitioner, healthcare and educational activist, television producer, writer, and public speaker, is set to return to the screen as wife to Ramsey Nouah, an ace actor, in ‘Web’, a forthcoming movie.
According to her Instagram post, Askia disclosed she would be playing the character of Olivia, whereas Nouah will be starring in the movie as Desmond.
The young looking 53-year-old star who also announced that it was her last day on set, appreciated the cast and other film stars who made the project a reality.
“And so, I wrap up on the set of Web today as Olivia, a wife Desmond @ramseynouah will not forget in a hurry. Much love to cast and crew of @siderzentertainment @robertopeters @woleogundare and all the talented young men and women who made it happen,” she wrote.
Askia had earlier told fans about the forthcoming project on January 16.
“Here we go again with the cameras rolling!! Set of WEB!! Stay tuned!! @ramseynouah @pizza_teesa,” she had written.
As a healthcare and educational activist, she started her career as a model and actress.
She came to the limelight in 1993 for her role as Tokunbo Johnson in ‘Fortunes’, a soap opera on the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) network.
Askia continued to pull the strings afterwards, starring in several Nollywood hit movies. She also snagged numerous awards as well as recognition.
She, however, took a break from the movie landscape many years ago after she travelled to the United States to practice nursing. Part of this report is from Allure Vanguard.
