Con­nie and Shona con­tinue to serve re­la­tion­ship goals

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Worldwide -

ONE would think that run­ning a fam­ily, busi­ness and even act­ing to­gether would be enough. But not for Con­nie and Shona Fer­gu­son.

La­belled as the “golden cou­ple” of the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try, the two co-own a film and TV pro­duc­tion com­pany — Fer­gu­son Films and of­ten act to­gether. And it’s also no se­cret that they make the best team, given that they con­tinue to pro­duce highly-lauded shows such as Igazi, Rockville and more re­cently, The Queen.

“Shona and I have great chem­istry and syn­ergy — both per­son­ally and pro­fes­sion­ally,” Con­nie told Move in a re­cent in­ter­view.

“We un­der­stand only too well that we’ll not al­ways agree on every­thing so we’ve learnt the art of com­pro­mise. What’s im­por­tant to us is re­spect and know­ing that we’re work­ing to­wards the same goal.”

While it may seem that they have ded­i­cated their lives to their work, Con­nie and Shona — who have two daugh­ters and a grand­son, in­sist on putting fam­ily first.

“It can be tricky some­times when one is chas­ing dead­lines, but our week­ends, es­pe­cially Sun­days, are ded­i­cated to fam­ily. We also make a point of go­ing away as a fam­ily dur­ing work and school breaks," Con­nie said.

In De­cem­ber last year, the cou­ple cel­e­brated their 14 years of mar­riage in gush­ing trib­utes to each other on so­cial me­dia. — TimesLive
