EMMY Nominee Thuso Mbedu as opened up about a difficult time in her life.
The 26 year old Isithunzi actress spoke to DJ Sbu on Massiv Metro, revealing that she became an orphan after the death of her mother, and then her grandmother who raised her.
“It was tough towards the end of high school because when you’re a child, you are oblivious to the hardships of life. I had my best friend Nothando Ngidi in high school, who was a preacher’s kid. People didn’t really understand our friendship. But I remember there were times when she would bring me food because it was that tough,” she said.
Thuso’s mother died when she was four years old and although she didn’t have a relationship with her biological father, he died when she was 21.
“Without God, I don’t know where I would be. There were moments I would be at my weakest but I would still find myself praying,” she added.
The talented actress received a nod from the Emmy Awards for her role in Mzansi Magic’s series Isithunzi on the 27th of September and was beyond grateful for the achievement.
