Being sacked by Uzalo has not kept Thandeka Zulu from following her acting dream.

The multi-talented Thandeka Zulu has landed herself a role in a movie.


Zulu was given the boot byUzalo last year, but that hasn’t stopped her from looking for more acting work – and she has now landed a role in an unnamed movie, which starts shooting at the end of January.

“At the moment, my contract conditions do not allow me to say anything more about the movie,” she told SunBuzz. “But I will reveal all when the time is right.”


While she may still feel a bit bitter about the whole Uzalo situation, Zulu is grateful for the opportunity she was given. Zulu played Nombuso Mdletshe on the show.

Uzalo also helped me to become known to people in South Africa. Even though I’m no longer part of its cast, wherever I go, people still recognise me and get excited. Because of Nombuso, I have become an ambassador for KZN Sport and Recreation,” she added.
