But who is this beauty that Mzansi is always raving about. 

Natasha Netflix

Netflix's series, Blood and Water has a female-led cast featuring some of Mzansi freshest faces such as Natasha Thahane, Cindy Mahlangu, Ama Qamata, Khosi Ngema, and Gail Mabalane.

Blood & Water is directed by Nosipho Dumisa who directed film Nommer 37.

The series takes viewers on a journey of mystery as it tells the tale of Puleng Khumalo. A 16-year-old gets herself transferred to the same high school as a girl whom she suspects is her sister, who was kidnapped at birth 17 years earlier.

However, tweeps were not impressed because the series is all about teenagers, but the female cast does not have any teenagers in it. Critics believe that she is too old  for the role as she is 24 years old.

Natasha is not bothered at all by all the hate that is going arouns and she simply responsed to the critics with a meme of a child pulling faces. Even Rami Chuene came to her defence.

Natasha Career

Her first role as an actor came when she made an appearance on the show “eKasi: Our Stories” that was on e.Tv back in 2014. This industry is a cut throat one, but Natasha's talent has not gone un-noticed and has since managed to keep securing the bag.

She has managed to blend in with the creme de la creme of this industry, rubbing shoulders with the likes of the Fergusons on The Queen and Cornet Mamabolo on Skeem Saam.

It is a known fact that she used to date Bohlale Makgolane (Bo Maq). After their break up, rumors had been swirling around that Ms.Thahane was dating rapper, A-Reece, and that the two were married. However, she came out against those rumors stating that they are lies.

Natasha Controversy

When on the road, the golden rule is to not drink and drive and not to use your mobile device. While many do it and often get away with it, some are not so fortunate. They end up in the hospital or even worse; dead.

Natasha was dragged for recording and driving at the same time. She shared a video where she could be seen jamming to Bo Maq’s FOMO. She briefly took both her hands off the steering wheel during the recording of the video and she also took her eyes off the road to look at the camera.

Fans were not impressed at all and immediately they called her out and told her to follow the rules of the road even if she's jamming to her favourite song.

Back in late 2017, there were rumours of Natasha Thahane's pregnancy and wedding, and many looked forward to Natasha Thahane baby pics with some hoping for a pretty Natasha Thahane baby girl. This was all false as Natasha Thahane is still not married and does not have any children.

Some time ago the beauty became a trending topic when she tweeted that . Wait; what?

Although the star has been romantically linked to several boys before, many people thought that she was coming out as a lesbian or a bisexual woman. Natasha did not elaborate further but as usual, social media users jumped into their own conclusions. At the time, Natasha was known to be dating her American boyfriend she met whilst studying there.

Natasha Health

Natasha shared that she is struggling with Anemia and sometimes her days do not go the way she wants them to go.


She is not the only star that has come out with her health struggles. We hope she stays healthy and keeps strong.

Natasha is one that always keeps aiming for the stars and we can't wait to see her bring her talent on our screens with the roles that she's landed.
