Beloved actress Sophie Lichaba is coming back to your screens! Known for her iconic role as the feisty and glamorous Queen Moroka on Generations, the star is now joining SAFTA winning Mzansi Magic drama, Lockdown.
The 47 year-old said that she was looking forward to the role on such a prominent show in the country. “I’m just excited to be tackling such a challenging role on one of the biggest shows in the country,” she said.
The show’s creator Mandla N said that even though Sophie has been off the screens for a while, she remains one of the best actresses in the country.
“We haven’t seen Sophie in a while on South African television… But you could have said the same about Lorcia or Pamela when we cast them, and they’ve both reclaimed their places among the biggest stars in South Africa,” he said.
Lockdown is set to part with Mzansi Magic from January 31 next year and only play on the streaming platform Showmax.
