Muvhango actress Buhle Samuels, who considers herself to be a very sweet person in real life, says she actually loves playing an evil character every day on set.
In an interview with Metro FM’s Morning Fixx, Buhle had an interesting take on her character Matshidiso. The actress explained that she thoroughly enjoys playing the vindictive character, regardless of the fact that she’s actually the complete opposite of what Matshidiso is in real life.
“I’m so chilled. If I don’t like you, I just stay away from you, I don’t have time to be vindictive it just takes so much energy to be that way. But it’s fun playing Matshidiso because she’s completely the opposite of me. It’s fun to be evil for a day.
"I’m sweet, I don’t know how it is to be mean, so it kind of challenges me as an actress to emulate a character like that and make it believable. It really is cool."
To our surprise, Buhle also revealed in the interview that she’s working on a new single. Yes, ladies and gentleman, Buhle sings!
“My schedule is pretty hectic. Acting is very demanding and I need to be on set all the time, but I am working on releasing a single or two. So people can expect some amazing stuff from me, a different dimension and to just get to know who Buhle is.”
Buhle also mentioned that she’d love to dabble in behind-the-scenes work, like being a director and growing as an individual in the industry.
