Actress Kgomotso Christopher has joined the cast of e.tv’s hit soapie Scandal!
e.tv publicist Michael Pocock confirmed the news, explaining that the channel is excited to have her as part of the cast.
He says the former Isidingo actress will be joining her new tv family in June.
Kgomotso was “poached” from the SABC3 soapie after actress Masasa Mbangeni, who plays Scandal! villain Thembeka, left the show.
Pocock said they needed a strong female lead and “Kgomotso is the perfect fit for the role”.
Kgomotso will be playing a character named Yvonne, a high-class Sotho woman, who strings men along to help look after her so that she doesn’t have to work a day in her life.
Kgomotso started filming for the soapie this past week.
She tweeted: “Excited to be working with the talented cast and leading show.”
