- One of Mzansi's favourite actresses, Rami Chuene, will be leaving The Queen soon and peeps aren't happy
- She hasn't really gone into detail about why she's departing from the show, but opened up about something else
- Rami listed a number of the things that actors have to deal with and it's not pretty
Rami Chuene is leaving the popular soapie The Queen and while fans are really sad about it, she hasn't yet revealed just why she won't be part of the show any more.
Rami's charater, T-Gom, is getting killed off. Briefly.co.za reported that sources confirmed that she will die after being hit on the head by a bottle.
Rami and producers of the show, Connie and Shona Ferguson, have been tense ever since Rami publicly sided with Vatiswa Ndara against the Fergusons.
Veteran actress, Vatiswa, opened up to social media about the terrible treatment she received when she worked on one of the Fergusons' productions.
Rami had Vatiswa's back on social media and sources say she also often went toe-to-toe with the Fergusons on set as well.
Behind the scenes, Rami often took the younger actors' sides and was loud when it came to matters of unfair labour practices.
Now, Rami shared several scenarios that show the kind of situations and treatment our faves are facing daily.
Here are a handful of the examples Rami shared in a Twitter thread:
"You’re not allowed to get sick. If you go to a doctor and he books you off, production has a right to ask their own doctor for second opinion.
"You can’t just ask for a day off. Do you know how much money you actually cost production when you’re fatigued and can’t shoot? How dare you!
"Your mom died? But you know this is opening weekend and reviews are important, right? We can fly you in and out so you don’t miss the funeral - take it as our gift to you
"Everyone gets depressed, you’re not the first and you won’t be the last.
"Sorry, your aunt who brought you up doesn’t fall under immediate family. Sorry, the Western Cape is too far to travel and the show has to meet deadlines.
"How do you ask for a week off? Yes, you asked three months in advance but the storyline is yours. If you insist, we’ll have to cut your salary and write you out for three months. Your choice...
"You’ve gained weight, lose it! You lost too much, add a bit on! We can’t be wasting budget on your fluctuating body.
"We can’t work with her, she’s always high. We can’t work with her if she’s not high.
"Why are you asking for more money? Aren’t you supposed to be grateful that you actually have a job?
"We wanted to hire you but your talk of rights and royalties make us uneasy. We have a good show going and our cast and crew never complain and yet, here you are..."
Check out some other examples the actress gave. It's not pretty, fam.
