Natasha Thahane scored an exciting role as a lead actress in an upcoming Netflix series, Blood And Water.

The series is Africa’s second original Netflix series, the first being Queen Sono. However, not everyone was happy for the star bagging the role. Her role requires her to play a teenager who is in high school. Critics believe that she is tooold  for the role as she is 24 years old.

Unbothered and not offended by critics, Natasha responded with a viral meme of a child pulling faces.

Another critic who is displeased at the cast members said she wishes a teenager got the role and not Natasha.

Rami Chuene defended Natasha and said that the acting industry does not work like that and the casting is perfect.

"Just because you know how old the actors are, doesn’t mean they don’t fit the characters. Your wish comes from a place of not knowing & I don’t blame you."
