When actress Chi Mhende first appeared on SABC 1’s primetime soapie, Generations: The Legacy a couple of months ago playing the role of young bachelor Wandile Radebe, no one knew that the role was actually being played by a woman.

The news that Wandile was actually a woman in real life came a few months after Chi had been on the show. The news broke through social media when some people posted about it.

A lot of people have been intrigued by this actress and how she manages to convincingly play a man. Chi says despite having auditioned for other roles for the show over six years, playing Wandile was a great, hard and yet exciting experience.

Chi is the first woman on Mzansi television to play a man so convincingly. Chi has played a man before as Earnest Worthy in the play The Importance of being Earnest.

Her hypnotic talent had us all glued to our TV screens and without a doubt she's solidified her place in our hearts, that's exactly why she's our #WCW today!
