“The character was very challenging for me. She’s so mean and doesn’t care about other people,” said Cindy.

She said that she had to learn not to judge the character that she was playing. Cindy originally wanted the character that she was playing to be sweeter. She said that people don't understand that she's a lot more different from her portrayal on-screen.

Cindy originally received the role on Scandal after she left The Queen. The actress has now returned to the Mzansi Magic soapie produced by Ferguson Films.
