KZN’s Miss SA now a ‘horror phantom’

2012-01-14 00:00

NOT only does she possess beauty and brains, but it now appears the Miss South Africa 2011 finalist from Durban is flourishing as an actress too.

Last year, Lwandle Dlamini (21) was one of the Top 12 Miss South Africa finalists.

Recently, she has just finished shooting a horror film called Flush, to be broadcast on DStv’s Mzansi Magic on February 6.

“I was excited when I was asked to be part of the movie because I believe that the truth shall set you free,” which is the theme that prevails throughout the film.

Producer and director Bonie Sithebe described Ngwenya as a good listener and someone who follows instructions.

“We had to drop so many people because of the lack of the ability to listen or follow instructions,” she added.

The film is about a man who takes revenge and kills along the way. Ngwenya plays a phantom character, a businesswoman who helps him pursue his goals.

The 60-minute film, which keeps viewers in suspense throughout, was shot at a village in Botha’s Hill, Bergville and around Durban.

“We wanted to break the trend. South Africans are tired of Aids, violence and soapie films,” Sithebe added. She compared the film with American horror movie Wrong Turn.

Ngwenya is no stranger to cameras. She shot another short film last year.

“I was expected to be seductive and evil, the total opposite to my true character. I don’t believe in the idea of my body talking for me.”

But she took the challenging role in her stride and this could take her a step closer to more acting jobs.

Ngwenya will be pursuing her business law qualification at Management College of Southern Africa (Mancosa) this year.
