Lerato Marabe was thrust into superstardom when she was cast as Pretty on SABC 1s Skeem Saam and since then, she has managed to garner a following for herself.
A couple of weeks ago, the starlet got candid about the backlash she received for her role and how she got physically abused by a crazed fan, "In high school, my friends and I decided to go to KFC after school. So while we were waiting in the queue, this one lady walked up to me and slapped me across the face because of the storyline at the time."
The star also opened up about sexual harassment in the entertainment industry, although she has not experienced it, she says that it is rife in showbiz, "A lot of the time, the people in the industry will promise them jobs or whatever it is and be like you know what? If you sleep with me I will give you a job.' Women even laugh about it. It wasn't like a serious thing. I was like: 'Are you guys serious? There's so many ways that you can go about it, why would you sleep with someone?'" she said to Tshisa Live.
