Actress Matshepo Maleme has described her role on Skeem Saam as an answer to her prayers‚ which she wants to use to remind Mzansi of her talent.
The actress who has been in the industry for over a decade said that she was overcome with emotion when she bagged the role.
"When Skeem Saam came along‚ I had been praying for it. When I went to the auditions I actually got lost‚ went to the wrong place and finally arrived like an hour later. But I had a feeling‚ you know that feeling when you know something is yours? I nailed my audition and I got the call."
Matshepo plays Zandile Maphosa‚ a wife of Lehasa Maphosa (played by Cedric Fourie) who loves her husband but is secretly suffering. Her debut on Tuesday night didn't give away much but she said viewers should stay tuned for more.
She added that after being in the industry for so long she realised the importance of reinventing herself as a professional.
