Check Out Madongwe’s Real Age and How She Got a Job at Uzalo
On screen, she plays a mother to Lilly, she looks old to and she maybe probably well above 45 years old, but her Real age is fairly different from what she portrays on Uzalo. A 35 year old Zama Magubane Ngcobo who plays Madongwe says she grew up with a drive of being an actor as she had passion from an early stage of her life.
“When I was growing up I was able to tell myself that I had a talent because I loved acting but I was also skeptical until I went to Russell High School. I got there and continued with my acting lessons until one of my teachers told me that I had a great talent that I should not give up,” she said.
Zama says after trying her luck with Uzalo she just knew that she will get a call, but the call didn’t come for over two days and her hope was almost hurt, but the call eventually came and the rest was history. “After I did the interview my eyes did not go off my cellphone because I was expecting them to call me but for two days I waited and which disappointed me and told myself that I was not successful.
“Two days later I got a call telling me to bring my picture and confirmation of something I had previously copied. At that point I didn’t tell myself that I had actually found the place. But when I arrived I was given the papers and told to start reading my lines, ”she said.
Zama looks old on screen and that is the character she is playing, believe it or not, she is actually just 35 years old, meaning she was born in 1985 in Kwazulu-Natal.
