Like mother, like daugh­ter

Beauty’s got drama when her mon­ster mom Lil­lian moves in.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - ISIBAYA -

There was a shake-up in the Ng­wenya house­hold when Beauty’s (Thuli Tha­bethe) mother Lil­lian (Linda Se­bezo) ar­rived in town on Fri­day 21 April seek­ing shel­ter – she’s lost her house. For Beauty, it’s not just a visit from her mom; it means that ev­ery­thing is go­ing to change in her home and in her fam­ily and that’s some­thing she’s not happy about. But Thuli, who’s a mom in real life, as­sures fans that the un­fold­ing drama will be any­thing but dull as daugh­ter and mother col­lide…

What is Beauty’s re­la­tion­ship like with her mother? There’s no con­text to Beauty and Lil­lian’s re­la­tion­ship be­cause when you see the two of them to­gether, you know that they are mother and daugh­ter. They’re loud, crazy, pow­er­hun­gry and vi­cious. The only time that Beauty and Lil­lian don’t agree is when it comes to re­li­gion. Lil­lian hides be­hind re­li­gion and her bi­ble, while Beauty ac­cepts that there are They’re very close. Like when they are to­gether, they get along like a house on fire. But when they fight and ar­gue, they burn like a house on fire [Laughs]. Beauty is very strict with Lil­lian and she makes it clear that Lil­lian is liv­ing un­der her roof and un­der her rules. Lil­lian is go­ing to have to [try to] ad­just to a new way of liv­ing and view­ers will see how this af­fects ev­ery­body in the house. But there will be drama, right? Oh yes! The ma­jor trou­ble cen­tres around Lil­lian not ac­cept­ing Beauty’s hus­band Ju­das (Menzi Ngubane). Beauty got mar­ried at a very young age, much to Lil­lian’s dis­ap­proval, and for this Lil­lian is still an­gry with Ju­das. Lil­lian will do any­thing to see Ju­das fall, but when it comes to her grand­daugh­ter Zama (Linda Mtoba), she’s putty. What was your re­ac­tion to a sea­soned ac­tress like Linda Se­bezo be­ing cast as your on­screen mom? I bumped into her in the make-up room and I was amazed, just blown away. She’s such a strong ac­tress and she’s per­fect for the part of this pow­er­ful char­ac­ter. We shot three scenes and her comedic tim­ing is on point and she can be re­ally dra­matic! So will any­one else from Beauty’s fam­ily tag along with Lil­lian? It de­pends on the writ­ers and the fan re­ac­tion, but there will be men­tion of Beauty’s fa­ther in the sto­ry­line some­where. The Ng­wenyas are cor­rupt and their taxi em­pire is fall­ing apart… per­haps Beauty’s rel­a­tives are able to help them rise again to the top again…

Beauty is ready for any­thing that her mom can through at her.

Like it or not, Lil­lian’s got to play by Beauty’s rules.

Beauty’s hubby Ju­das is still a prob­lem for Lil­lian af­ter all these years.
