Three months after her fathers passing late last year, Moshidi made her TV comeback, speaking to Drum magazine, the award-winning actress opened up about how playing the role of a grieving wife helped her grieve the tragic loss.
“My father was sick, he had one lung and he passed away in August last year, three months later I got this role, had my father not passed away, I don’t think I would have tackled it in the same manner...because of my experience, the directors and producers allowed me to explore the character and give my output”
Moshidi went on to add that her role allowed her to gain perspective of how her mother dealt with the loss of her father, “it allows me to think about death and the different emotions you go through, the silences, the tears the memories we hold onto and the memories we go through”
