Mzansi Magic's Isithembiso has been on air for a few months & the masses can't get enough of the gripping show. It is one of our latest TV obsessions & we are thankful it.
One of the breakout stars of the show is Tshenolo Seabi who plays the role of Palesa, a spoiled daddy's girl, speaking to ZAlebs about her journey thus far, the actress said this is her first role after graduating, "I am fresh out of AFDA, I graduated in March after majoring in Performance Art & it is pretty cool that I got a job straight after school."
"This is my first acting gig, it is exciting yet scary but I think it is going to be a great experience for me, for the time ever, I am practicing the things that I was taught in school." she added
The actress says that she was surprised when she got the role, " I did not see myself as a lead, not because I look down on myself but because I just did not think I was ready at the time, this is such a big production & I am honored."
Speaking of the similarities she shares with her character she said, "we are both very bubbly, both kind & sweet, I feel like I am playing myself except for the rich kid part, I am not a rich kid."
Like many young starlets in the industry, she has been receiving a lot of attention from her male fans who would like to date her but unfortunately, this gorgeous lady is in a relationship, "I am not single, I have been seeing my partner for the past 2 years, I am fine where I am & it is comfortable."
Tshenolo is well on her way to becoming a big star & we can't wait to see her journey.
