Could it be that the two shows are working together behind the scenes or its just actors finding more gigs to work for two different shows at the same time?
Well, from what we see, there has been a number of cases this has happened before and it definitely cannot be by coincident; The Fergusons and Ochre Media are working together on this.
Recently fans were shocked to see Scandal’s Grace Medupe, played by Bathabile Mashigo feature on the latest The Queen episode where she played a house helper.
Even though she appeared for a short while on the episode, her impact can be felt.
She appeared as Gertrude the housekeeper who came just after Kagiso’s baby, Mvelo was kidnapped.
As shy as she is, it is almost obvious that she is responsible for the kid’s disappearance. If not, then she saw who stole the child.
Back on Scandal, Bathabile Mashigo plays Grace who just lost her son Romeo.
While we are waiting to see how this not so unusual exchange of character plays for both shows, it is important to point out a few we have seen before;
Sindy Mahlangu moved from The Queen to Scandal, prompting many to think she had been fired by The Fergusons but only to re-appear back on The Queen a while later.
Interestingly, the character she was married to on Scandal, Simo Magwaza moved to The Queen and is playing Dollar, a notorious drug dealer.
Another character linked to Simo Magwaza on Scandal is Andile Sithole.
He plays the role of Ndumiso on Scandal while on The Queen plays Dollar’s right-hand man.
Such exchanges cannot really go unnoticed for show lovers.
We cant wait to see more of such in the future.
