Thembi Mtshali’s whose track record in the industry speaks for itself. But even after being in the industry for over 30 years Thembi is now back and better than ever!

The actress bagged a lead role on new drama Imbewu: The Seed as Mandlovu, a character that she told TshisaLIVE “challenged her” more than most because Mandlovu was such a ruthless woman.

“I used to be the girlfriend on TV,” she said in between giggles.

“Now I am the grandmother, with a lot of wisdom collected in between. I’m lucky that my calling doesn’t have an expiry date and I can still tell stories, because I love it.”

The actress laughed when we reminded her that she’d been in the industry for over three decades. She said looking back, she doesn’t have a particular character she loved more than the others.

However, she admitted that some of her characters have been more iconic than others.

Thembi added that she was grateful different generations identified with different eras of her acting.

We wish our Ethekwini Living Legend well on this journey!
