There’s no greater feeling than finally achieving your long-awaited dream.
Mantho Temeki is excited that she will finally see her face on the small screen in a few days.
The 25-year-old from Palm Springs in the Vaal will be one of the first actors to be on the new season ofeKasi: Our Stories drama called Blind Date.
She takes him home, has a good time and the guy leaves the following morning.
Speaking to SunBuzz, she said: “I am so excited to finally be acting on TV. I have done a lot of theatre and have been working towards this all my life.
“I am so grateful for the opportunity to showcase my talent.”
Mantho will be playing the role of Nomsa who she believes shares many similarities to her real life character because she is also cool, calm and collected.
“Nomsa is a good person, she loves her friends and always gives them good advice. She has a good head on her shoulders.”
After high school Mantho enrolled to study business management but dropped out soon after because she realised that her calling was acting.
“I enrolled at the Soyikwa Institute of Theatre in 2009 and graduated in 2011.
“I then moved to Diepkloof, Soweto because theatre is not big where I come from and the acting opportunities are in Joburg.”
Even though Mantho has finally landed her first TV role, she said she never wants to stop live theatre because it is a good training ground for aspiring actors.
She is looking forward to getting more TV roles.
– The new season of eKasi: Our Stories drama will air on e.tv on Monday, 6 January at 9pm.
