Regina Askia, a Nigerian-born American-based family nurse practitioner, is set to return to the screen as wife to Ramsey Nouah, an ace actor, in ‘Web’, a forthcoming movie.

In an Instagram post on Thursday, Askia revealed she would be playing the character of Olivia while Nouah will be starring in the movie as Desmond.

The 53-year-old, who also disclosed that it was her last day on set, commended 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. 

The nurse had earlier teased 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.

The healthcare cum educational activist kickstarted her career as a model and actress.

She rode 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.
