Casting News: Ferguson Films casting call for Uncle Brutus’ four sons – Here is how you can audition
The Queen seems to have lost its ground of late in the plot and storyline. We can all agree the mass exodus of seasoned actors gave the show a considerable blow. However, the drama series has managed to wow Mzansi with its star-studded cast in the mix of things. We can all agree the showrunners of The Queen has proved a point why the drama series is one of the best not only on Mzansi Magic but Mzansi at large.
In recent months the show lost several lead actors, SK Khoza, who was shown the exit door after being implicated in a gender-based violence case. Celebrated star actress Cindy Mahlangu dumped the drama series in the eleventh hour in her exit.
However in the mix of things the drama series is looking for new actors to bolster their starstudded cast. Ferguson Films is looking for four characters to star as Uncle Brutu’s son. We can all agree the Khoza household has been silent since SK bowed out of the drama series. Here are some of the character descriptions for the auditions.
