- Dineo for her part says she has learned a lot from the veteran actress
Dineo Moeketsi has earned the praise and respect of one of South Africa’s most decorated actresses, Connie Ferguson. The duo has been working together on the hit TV series The Queen in recent months.
Connie and Dineo have been wowing viewers with their roles of mother and daughter on the small screen.
“She can be very hard on herself at times but I believe she has slowly learnt to trust herself in the process and just be,” the veteran actress says. “A lot of the time acting is about instinct and I believe she is at a point where she has learnt to trust hers. She is a phenomenal young actress and I am proud and honoured to be her TV mom,” Connie said.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Connie added that she is full of praises for the younger actress and said she was proud to be Dineo’s TV mom.
Dineo for her part says she has learned a lot from Connie, her work ethic is something in particular which Dineo has strived to emulate.
Dineo says Connie’s determination to take her work seriously is what has brought her this far in the South African entertainment industry.
“It’s not a hobby or way to become famous! Fame is just a side effect of what I do. I love telling stories and living vicariously through the characters I play. Some are inspiring, others not so much. “There are always life lessons to be learnt,” she adds, “and I love this aspect of being able to ‘life coach’ while entertaining,” she said.
Dineo says Connie gave her invaluable advice such as respecting her fellow cast and crew members, always ask questions and to never burn bridges.
