I realised that I wanted to act when I was 9 years old. I was so infatuated with creating scenarios and acting them out for my family; and I would get such a kick out of it when they believed me. That’s when I knew that this is what I wanted to do.

MaMlambo had grown immensely. I’ve been on the show from the beginning, but now we’ve shown different parts of who she is. Also, there is nothing that will teach you about life [more] than love. One of my favorite acting coaches used to say “life problems are acting
problems”; there is nothing that we go through in life that will not be a lesson for us as actors. I’ve seen so much in life and met so many people, and I’ve been able to now take from my different experiences and mold my character and her experiences.”
