Uzalo actors and actresses are not only close on tv but also off the screen as well.
Uzalo actor Nkanyiso Makhanya and fellow actress Thuthuka Mthembu, had a lunch date off the screen.
The pair, who play brother and sister on the popular soapie Uzalo, decided to extend their onscreen relationship to have a good time as the two are obviously close in real life since they spend a lot of time together, onset working.
The picture of the two popular faces hanging out together triggered a flood of comments on social media, even celebs like Somizi and fellow Uzalo castmates like Dawn Thandeka King, Nelisa Mchunu also commented on the picture.
The two are happily taken and off the market although they would make a cute couple offscreen
Nkanyiso is said to be dating The Queen actress Ntando Duma’s sister Thando Duma and they are rumored to have been together for 5 years now.
Thuthuka on the other hand has posted a picture with a mysterious man whom many believe is her real-life boyfriend.
Despite appearing like a seasoned actress on Uzalo, Thuthuka said she has no other acting experience and the soapie was her first gig.
“Uzalo is my first acting gig. I’ve always had the desire and passion for being on-screen. I did commercials and features as an extra as a child, but Uzalo is the biggest thing I’ve ever done in my television career.”
Nkanyiso on the other hand almost lost a part on Uzalo but he said that just taught him to be resilient.
He also said many men who watch Uzalo can identify with his character of Njeza.
Njeza’s storylines are not so far fetched, they mirror real-life experiences in the township, and most people who watch feel like it’s real and it’s not just an act.
