Vibrant actress and entrepreneur Thandy Matlaila will make her debut on SABC2’s month old telenovela, “Die Sentrum” on May 6.
Matlaila takes on the role of Bapsi Mahola, big sister to Buhle and a character who’s full of drama.
The show is centred around a group of eight diverse counsellors who work at a helpline call centre, helping callers with their personal issues.
It explores compelling social realism scenarios against the present times in South Africa.
Alcoholism, domestic violence, a desperate search for love, and secret lifestyles, are some of the subjects the counsellors need to deal with.
Matlaila took to Instagram to announce the news.
She wrote: “‼️ NEW ROLE ALERT ‼️ Tonight I’d like you to meet Bapsi Mahola at 6pm on @sabc2 ‘s @diesentrum.sabc2.
“She’s nothing short of drama & her little is sis is sadly forever on the receiving end of it.
