The Queen's Petronella is our new favourite

Even though actress Thembsie Matu is not new to our screens, she deserves a shout out for slaying her role as Petronella on Mzansi Magic's The Queen. She joined the cast a few weeks ago to play Mjakes' on-screen wife as well as the Mabuza family's helper.

Matu has had roles in shows such as Gaz'Lam, Jacob's Cross, Home Affairs, The Wild and more but it wasn't until she took on the role of Rhythm City's Sis' Bee that viewers really started to sit up and take notice. 

Her role on the Ferguson Films'drama, Rockville was also a hit among television viewers but her latest role is fast becoming her best by far. 

Matu also recently joined Twitter and entertainment blogger, Phil Mpela, spearheaded a hashtag campaign titled #FollowThembsieMatu to get her more followers. 

She has since gone from 1600, followers to over 3000 followers. If you're not following her yet, perhaps these scenes might convince you:
