Popular Skeem Saam actress Natasha Thahane has apparently left the show to take up a role on Mzansi Magic’s new telenovela‚ The Queens.
Speaking to Drum‚ Natasha confirmed that she has finished filming with the show and said that she left to pursue other opportunities.
“It’s been an amazing 18 months with Skeem Saam. I miss them already because they were like family to me‚” she told the magazine.
Natasha‚ who is also the granddaughter of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu‚ said that she left the show on “good terms“.
“The production was so nice‚ they threw a farewell party for me where they showered me with gifts‚” she added.
Natasha’s departure comes only days after Skeem Saam fans bid farewell to actor Oros Mampofu’s character Jamma. His gruesome death shocked many and even sparked fake reports of a devastated fan committing suicide over the character’s death.
