Mzansi Magic viewers were left begging for more yesterday, on episode 2 of Lockdown Mzansi season 5. Known for its cliffhangers, plot twists and emotional roller-coaster, Lockdown is famous for boasting a powerful, all-female lead cast and the roster is more impressive for Season 5.
This season joining the star-studded cast was Sophie Lichaba, who became a household name on Generations. Sophie plays the character of Palesa, a broken nurse at the Kgotsong Asylum, who is ready to wreak havoc on the health facility.
The actress took a hiatus from the acting scene a few years ago, to focus on her health, but the Queen is back, and she is ready to give Mzansi some fresh and authentic acting.
Many were left hyping praises on her portrayal of the character which resonates with all the struggles she endured with her health and recovering.
Her groundbreaking acting left the masses emotional yesterday and almost reaching for tissues. Many were thrilled to see her back, and they are definitely in for a treat this season.
