Jamie and jimmy’s food fight club

TV Plus (South Africa) - - 17 DECEMBER -

ra­dio star Chris moyles fires up his favourite food – an au­then­tic new York-style pizza. then Jamie does a mash-up by com­bin­ing a roast with a curry. what’s it like be­ing back in the spot­light? it’s chal­leng­ing, hey. to­day’s youth aren’t the same to en­ter­tain. but it’s amaz­ing how many doors have been open­ing for me. like mu­tual friends! tell us about your character. i play patty, who’s in her early 50s. she’s a has­been celebrity of the ’80s and keeps go­ing on about her “wild days”. she’s still a party an­i­mal even though she has a fam­ily at home. how sim­i­lar are you to the character? we’re both moms in our 50s rais­ing teen boys. and we’re go-get­ters. how are you dif­fer­ent from her? patty’s not in touch with re­al­ity. she’s abu­sive and an al­co­holic who lives in the past. i don’t drink, so i had to do a lot of re­search, es­pe­cially on abuse to­wards men. and what’s the best part about play­ing patty? get­ting to be a dif­fer­ent per­son. i love act­ing be­cause you can be any­body at any time and get in touch with other worlds. it’s tax­ing and ex­cit­ing all at once. how’s she dif­fer­ent from the other char­ac­ters you’ve played? on gen­er­a­tions i was this rich model-like girl. now i’m act­ing my age and re­late to a whole lot of things. what was it like work­ing with such a big cast on mu­tual friends? i never re­ally got to work with luthuli (dlamini, who plays dr zweli dlamini) and i’m a fan. work­ing with neo nt­latleng (who plays sizwe) as my son has im­proved my re­la­tion­ship with my own son oratile, who’s 15.
