Former Generations actress, Pamela Nomvete, best known for her role as Ntsiki Lukhele, has come back to grace us with her talent on our screens and it is in one of the country’s favourite drama, Lockdown.
Nomvete moved to the United Kingdom when she hit rock bottom a few years ago as an actress, she then continued to write a memoir titled ‘Dancing to the Beat of the Drum: In Search of my Spiritual Home’ where she detailed all the struggles she went through as an actress in South Africa. The memoir has since been turned into a play ever since she returned to South Africa, which became available in South Africa in August, last month, for only R84.
Ever since her move to London, she has acted in their productions and more recently as Mandy Kamara on the British soapie Coronation Street, a character she portrayed for only a year.
Nomvete has come back to our screens as Governor Deborah Banda who holds a dark secret that will haunt her throughout the season.
Ever since she announced that she will be joining Lockdown, a lot of South Africans have welcomed her back with open arms and cannot wait to see her in action once again. Portia Gumede said “that the veteran actress inspires her do better for this industry.”
New additions to the drama include, Nomzamo Mbatha, Linda Sebezo and Thabo Rametsi.
Lockdown returns for season 2 on Monday, 09 October. So be sure to catch it. Congratulations to Pamela Nomvete, we certainly cannot wait to uncover your dark secret and see how you work hard to keep it a secret.
