2015-01-28 07:00


Abena Ayivor is making her return to the land of soapies.

The former Generations star, who's been missing from our TV screens for years, has joined Rhythm City.  Abena, who'll be playing Anna on the soapie, told The Star about her character: What I love about her is that she is a hardball, but fair. There is funny business. She is the best at what she does and is always prepared."

Asked if returning to soapies is stranger, she responded: "It's almost like coming home. There is definitely a soap rhythm that you fall back into. But it is a completely different production, so the energy is different. But there is a definite family kind of feel on set. I found it to be a very friendly and nurturing environment, right from the top to the bottom."

Although it seems like the actress has been missing in action for years, her CV proves that she's right up there with the best. She told the paper: "Yeah, I stayed away from soaps for a long time. I was just saying to someone the other day, Generations is such a big machine. When you do other work that isn’t as busy and out there, people wonder where you have gone. But I have been constantly working. Generally, lots of international work and voice-overs."

Welcome back!
