MIKE OMOREGBEE  Returns to active acting with a lead role in Invasion 1897, after nearly 24 years of acting-hibernation. First ever appearance in a Nollywood production, Mike is not new to acting and production. His acting dates back to secondary school days, with baby-roles like Bambulu in "This is our Chance", James Ene Henshaw. Later, as an undergraduate student of English and Literature, University of Benin, he co-founded ELSA Playhouse with Aoiri Obaigbo and Tunde Adeleke, becoming the second president of the playhouse after Aoiri and playing roles like King Creon in Sophocles’ Antigone,  and Remi in Ngugi wa’Thiongo’s The Black Hermit.

His undergraduate days also saw active participation in the creation and evolution of Earthpot Kulture where he was a director with the likes of Ossa Earliece and Henri-Ese. Invasion 1897, the film by Lancelot Oduwa Imasuen marks a major return to acting and a formal entry into the big screen. It has taken a script this apt, socio-politically relevant, adroitly crafted and a production team this renowned, versatile, capable and passionate to rouse the act in him! Invasion 1897 was quite an experience for him, after years of silence; and it is unlikely to be the last.
