Mzansi actress Cindy Mahlangu has closed off her final performance in the soapie Scandal and she has spoken about leaving the show on a good note. Last night's episode left viewers with a cliffhanger.
Cindy plays the character of Violetta on the show. Her character is one that viewers love to hate and they would like to see an end to her evil ways.
According to a report by The Sowetan, Violetta's exit from the show will be by the death of her character.
Cindy has said that she found it difficult to play the role of such a heartless character, however, she managed to power through and did a good job.
“The character was very challenging for me. She’s so mean and doesn’t care about other people,” said Cindy.
