- Rami Chuene's character on The Queen was a huge fan favourite
- However, she has left the show and it seems this cost her a SAFTA nomination
- The actress didn't throw a tantrum and instead mentioned that many actors weren't nominated
Rami Chuene was overlooked for an award at the SA Film and Television Awards and this doesn't sit right with her fans.
They feel the actress should be appreciated for the hard work she did while playing the role of TGom in The Queen.
Rami left the show under a dark cloud of controversy - it is claimed she was fired for supporting fellow actress Vatiswa Ndara.
Vatiswa had earlier spoken up against the treatment of actors and the producers behind The Queen, Connie and Shona Ferguson, and received a lot of negative attention.
But Rami chose not to be bitter but rather cast a light on the way that actors are submitted for consideration for awards at the SAFTAs.
She also managed to crack a joke - perhaps to show that she's not upset about the snub.
"It starts with the production submitting me. Only 1 best actor & 1 best actress were submitted, with all those leads, imagine! They should have cast the net wider like other productions."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Rami also cast a light on the way actors are treated at work.
She listed dozens of difficult scenarios that actors face daily and things are clearly not as glamorous or wonderful behind the screens as we think they are.
