She might be one of the underrated actresses on Uzalo but she has the plug. We can all agree that she knows how to play her motherly role well. Since her thrust into the limelight, she has been making all sorts of headlines of late.
Zama Magubane is a South African actress best known as Madongwe on Uzalo. However, on Uzalo, she plays the on-screen character of Lily’s mother.
Did you know that she is a married woman? Yes, she’s married to Mr Msibi and they have 3 children together. How old do you think she is?
The bubbly actress was born on the 18th of June 1983. However, she is 38-years-old. Before her Uzalo gig, she used to be a presenter on SABC 3 in (2010) from there she starred on Isehlukaniso (2018).
Her thrust to stardom came when she secured a gig on Intersections. Well, she starred as a nurse but she was an extra. However, she didn’t despise humble beginnings. She realized that if you want to succeed you have to start somewhere small and grow.
“When I was growing up I was able to tell myself that I had talent because I loved acting but I was also sceptical until I went to Russell High School. I got there and continued with my acting lessons until one of my teachers told me that I had a great talent that I should not give up,” she said.
Zama says after trying her luck with Uzalo she just knew that she will get a call, but the call didn’t come for over two days and her hope was almost dented, but the call eventually came and the rest was history.
“Two days later I got a call telling me to bring my picture and confirmation of something I had previously copied. At that point, I didn’t tell myself that I had actually found the place. But when I arrived I was given the papers and told to start reading my lines, ”she said.
