Natasha Thahane blasts Ferguson Films, reveals the reason dumped The Queen
In the wake of her return, she was recast on The Queen, but alas, she pulled a shock when she dumped the drama series.
Reasons behind her exit were kept under wraps, but it seems as if she has been open enough to talk about it of late. The 25-year-old actress revealed that at The Queen, there was nothing for her to learn. However, she made it clear that she was used to the same old routine that wasn’t paving her career.
In the mix of things, the actress even credited Skeem Saam for thrusting her into the limelight and being privy to her unmatched talent because of its cast and working conditions. Despite just mentioning her road to fame, Mzansi managed to connect the dots. Thahane isn’t the first actress who have dumped the Ferguson Films because of their working conditions.
Recently Cindy Mahlangu also dumped the show, and rumour has it that she had a fallout with the showrunners. Moreover, The Queen once trended for mistreating its cast, and Rami Chiume was fired for demanding working conditions by Fergusons Films.
