Hi tvplus. Masasa Mbangeni has announced that she’s leaving Scandal! When is she going? Is she coming back? – HILDA, VILLIERSDORP While Thembeka’s a slippery character who’ll never give you the truth, Masasa opened up to us about why she’s leaving. “I’ve been with Scandal! for five years and I want to explore other sides of who I am as an artist,” she says. “Last year I was in the A-story throughout the year and it was very difficult to take time off to go do theatre or be able to replenish myself. Shooting the wedding (in May 2015) was exhausting. I had just come back from Canada, doing a play there, and after travelling 21 hours to get back home I had a day to get myself together.” The production team was shocked but understanding when Masasa explained her reasons and that she wasn’t sure if or when she’d return. Thembeka will be onscreen until May this year. NB!
Masasa Mbangeni is waving goodbye
to Scandal! fans.
