Zimbabwe-born actress Chiedza Mhende has been making waves in the South African Television industry since she debuted on Mzansi screens with her role on the revamped ‘Generations: The Legacy’ where she played a male role.
She has bagged yet another big role on the same telenovela, now adding “Trainee Director” to her impeccable resume..
According to Entertainment Commentator Phil Mphela, Chi Mhende took up her new role as Generations The Legacy Trainee Director and debuted her first directorial training on last night’s episode of the hit soapie.
Chi Mhende confirmed the developments by endorsing Phil’s tweet with a message of gratitude stating, “Thank you sire.”
Born Charlene Chiedza Kudzai Mhende, she grew up in Zimbabwe and later moved to Cape Town, South Africa in 2006 to study at the African Film and Drama and Arts (AFDA) School of Motion Picture Medium and Live Performance.
She broke into the spotlight after she starred on popular SA soapie Generations as Wandile, a male character.
It was through her unique acting skills that Mzansi was intrigued after finding out that she was a woman in real life.
She has managed to stay in the limelight for quite a while and recently starred on Netflix’s original African series Queen Sono alongside popular South African actress and media personality Pearl Thusi.
Yet, this time around, the starlet has thrown in the towel when it comes to performing on the screen – at least temporarily – to pursue her interests behind the scenes.
