Once Upon A Time
Season 5 Vuzu (*116) 20:30 Sci-fi Episode 20 Hades asks the heroes to help him get Zelena back from Rumplestiltskin and Peter Pan.
Was it difficult adjusting from playing Thembeka? It’s still acting. The only challenge was going from filming in a multi-camera set-up to single camera. Also, soapies tend to have long, drawn-out storylines, while dramas are short and sweet in their storytelling. How are Sindi and Thembeka different? Thembeka was from an affluent family and had a softness to her, while Sindi is behind bars with a child and is quite hard. That element of gentleness isn’t there. They’re from opposite ends of the spectrum. I don’t like comparing them – people must forget about Thembeka. She’s never coming back. What excites you most about Sindi? There are a lot of stunts and we’re very grimy, with no make-up on. This is the biggest difference because working on a soap means wearing that “mask” every day. Will we be seeing more of you on TV when Thola comes to an end? I’ve been rehearsing for a play called The Dying Screams Of The Moon by Zakes Mda and John Kani. Theatre is my first love. Thembeka was an iconic character, so I’m looking at projects that are different from her. If you’re hoping to see me in a soap, unfortunately I’m not going back there. My biggest fear was leaving Scandal! and now that that’s done, I’m focusing on running my own race.
