SA actress Zinhle Zuma reveals how her family feels about her role on Smoke and Mirrors

Zinhle Zuma is a South African actress who is best known for a few television drama shows such as Goodbye Gogo, Umhlukanisi, Little Big Mouth, House of Zwide, Umbuso, Kasi Loving, My Brothers Keeper, and Ubuhle Bendalo.

This 25-year-old actress has bagged herself a new acting role as ‘Lilly’ on the E.TV soap opera Smoke and Mirrors. Lilly is a s€x worker who works for Martha at the two-star hotel in Emnyameni.

When this actress got the opportunity to play a sex worker on screen, she thought it would taint her image and reputation.

Zinhle Zuma’s family initially opposed her portrayal of a sex worker in Smoke and Mirrors, but she accepted the challenge because she enjoys pushing herself. Her family is now impressed by her talent. She recalls telling her agency that she could not play a sex worker, but then changed her mind.

“I dislike being comfortable and like to take on new challenges. As a result, I accepted the assignment,” Zinhle explained.

This Dannhauser KZN-born star stated that while some people recognise it’s an act, others don’t. “Not everybody understands. My brothers did not like me portraying the character. They said it would not work. My mother and her friends have been supportive since they know I’m not that type of person,” she explained.
