Siphesihle Ndaba graces front page!
After her successful stint in one of Mzansi’s most popular telenovelas, Gomora, actress Siphesihle Ndaba is ready to take on a new challenge and showcase her acting prowess to the Mzansi audience.
Siphesihle Ndaba graces New Role in “Killer Front Page”
Siphesihle is set to star in a new dark comedy series on Mzanzi Magic titled “Killer Front Page”. In this series, she will be portraying the character of Palesa, a captivating journalist with aspirations of becoming a TV news anchor like Noxolo Grootboom and owning a news channel like Thabile Ngwato. The excitement was palpable when Siphesihle spoke about her new role. She expressed her enthusiasm about stepping into a new character, different from her previous role as Mazet in Gomora, and exploring different personalities and characteristics.
Lessons from the Character
In the process of embodying Palesa, Siphesihle shared that she has gained significant insights. She learned that individuals who are vindictive, dark, and harmful are not always hidden in the shadows. Sometimes, they are the people who greet you with a smile every day. This revelation has added a new dimension to her understanding of human nature.
Challenges and Appreciation
Siphesihle also opened up about the challenges she faced while preparing for her new role. One of the most difficult aspects was adapting to Palesa’s preference for wearing heels every day, a stark contrast to her previous character, Mazet, who never wore heels. Spending 12 hours on set in heels was a tough task, and it gave her a newfound respect for women in the corporate world who do this regularly.
After her initial TV show with Gomora, Siphesihle is eager for her fans to see her in a new light through her role in “Killer Front Page”. She hopes that the audience will appreciate the leap of faith taken not just in the storyline but also in the creation of the production itself. “Killer Front Page” is the first-ever dark comedy in South Africa, marking a significant milestone in the country’s entertainment industry. Siphesihle expressed her gratitude for the continuous support from the audience, acknowledging that the success of many in the film industry is largely due to the people who watch and support their shows.
