Luyanda Zwane expresses her excitement on being given the lead role of Sibongile Mbambo

Speaking to Briefly News, Luyanda Zwane said it was not difficult tapping into the role of Sibongile as she exudes similar traits as herself.

"Playing Sibongile Mbambo comes as second nature to me as I just have to bring out the innocence and softness that Sibongile exudes, and I do have that as Luyanda."

She reflected on the moment she got the call informing her of the role.

"It was the 1st of June 2023 when I received the call while I was out for lunch. I received the call of confirmation from Nolwazi Shange, a very reputable and accomplished casting director. I was ecstatic when I received the call because a night before, I had picture wrapped one of my dream jobs, and I prayed to God and asked for a job that would cover me for the second half of the year, and my prayer was answered the following day through getting Sibongile and The Dlaminis."

Speaking on the role of Sibongile, Luyanda said:

"Sibongile Mbambo is an ambitious and hopeful girl who was born and bred eXopo. She is ready to fly her wings and head to KZN to study, only for her dreams to get crushed by a rejection letter from NSFAS, and her stepmother offers her a job in Durban as a cleaner/ maid, which debilitates her in so many ways."

Luyanda was awarded the opportunity to work alongside the prolific actors. She learnt a great deal about acting and life in general.

"Working with iconic stars like Slindile Nodongala, Bhekani Shabalala, Mduduzi Ntombela, Vuyo Biyela, Siyabonga Shibe, and Ayanda Borotho is such a Bargain for me as I get to learn a lot from them, I learn a lot about the craft and life as well."

Taking to her Instagram page, Luyanda expressed her excitement and even shared a motivational message. In addition to that, she thanked her on-screen romance Vuyo Biyela.
