It’s something that every woman faces, the fear of what will happen when she tells her employers she’s pregnant. Will she be supported or will she be given the boot?

Actress, Gail Mabalane experienced just this when she was pregnant with her second child. She auditioned and was cast for a role. When she was called back to assist with a reading for one of the other actors auditioning, she decided to tell them she was five months pregnant.

When speaking about the incident, she says she was not even showing yet but felt that out of courtesy she should let them know.

Mabalane commented that she has already received her contract for the part, and passed it on to her legal team when the producers called to say they were not really sure she would be the right fit for the role.
