Thembisa Mdoda-Nxumalo has taken on the role as Vuyiswa Maake in The Queen. Zandile Msutwana, who usually portrays the role, got injured on set and Ferguson Films had to make a quick plan to replace her.
Taking to social media, Thembisa showed that she's ready to take on the role and she's excited. She captioned her post with the following:
