Ayanda Thabethe joins Rockville
Actress and TV presenter Ayanda Thabethe is really having a great 2016. Ayanda has landed a role in Mzansi’s Rockville, which has launched and cemented some of Mzansi’s biggest stars.
Rockville has seen some great talent in past seasons, having helped propel the likes of Boity Thulo, Khanya Mkangisa and Minnie Dlamini to be the house names that they are today.
Ayanda has done a bit of acting in the past, and the Rockville role seems to be her biggest one by far. She also calls it her big break into acting.
“It’s been an absolutely big honour to have a break-out role with the show and work with all these big names. But it’s also very intimidating. It was very nerve-racking. It has been a very good learning experience,” Thabethe said.
Rockville will be our screens in July, so fans will have to be a little more patient.
When speaking to Sunday World, Ayanda says she did lap dance lessons, to prepare herself for her new role.
“The audience can look forward to a strong and determined individual, who has a weakness for a certain guy,” she said.
Ayanda started 2016 on a high, following the breakdown of her marriage to Andile Ncube. Not only did she land a role on Rockville, she is also the face of Khosi Nkosi – the fashion brand taking Mzansi by storm.
Ayanda also landed a huge endorsement deal, one she calls the biggest one of her career.
Congrats Ayanda . . . keep soaring!
