THEM­BEKA’S GET­AWAY

TV Plus (South Africa) - - YOU ASK -

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.
