Actress Lungelo Mpangase has scored another major role. The talented actress, who’s best known for her role as Khethiwe on Mzansi Magic’s drama series eHostela, has bagged a role on Mzali Wam.
She will be playing the role of a graduate looking for work
Lugelo told SunBuzz: “Scoring another role on such a major TV show is affirmation that whatever I am doing is good, it really feels great.
“Acting is something that’s very close to my heart and I love what I do. This role came at the right time because I was looking for a new challenge as I really love to challenge myself as an actress.”
The 26-year-old star, who plays the role of Ntokozo, describes her as naive and someone who is easily lured.
“Ntokozo is a graduate looking to live her dream job of helping people in need. She finds herself between a rock and a hard place when she finds out her parents aren’t her biological parents,” she said.
“She is a bit naive and is easily lured, but at the same time she is determined and hardworking, very respectful and well-mannered.
“But she needs to learn not to trust easily. Stepping out of my shoes and fully getting into hers was a challenge because I had to fully leave myself to make sure that she is believable as she experiences a lot of trauma.”
They shot some of the episodes under strict Covid-19 regulations and she said they quickly had to adjust to working under the regulations.
“The pandemic has affected us a lot, but it was not a train smash.
“I was working with a great cast and well-trained crew, so we quickly adjusted,” she said.
Lungelo said since her big break in the acting scene, her journey has been amazing.
“The journey is still exciting and humbling. I learn a lot every day,” she said.
