Television’s power couple to star in ‘The Wilds’

2011-01-25 00:00

SOUTH African television power couple — Connie and Shona Ferguson — are set to share screen time in M-Net’s brand new English-language soap, The Wild, which will air on Monday, April 4.

Connie is best known for her role as the gorgeous Karabo Moroka in Generations, in which she starred for 16 years; while Botswana-born Shona has brought many leading men to life on screen in Generations, Muvhango, Isidingo and Scandal!.

M-Net’s channel head, Pierre Cloete, said the involvement of the two actors is a coup for the channel.

“Connie Ferguson and Shona Ferguson are TV — and soap — veterans,” he added.

“The South African public loves these two charismatic and talented personalities and their involvement in The Wild sets the tone for what will be an incredible and glamourous new series.”

Shona will play the role of Ithumileng Tladi, the charismatic oldest brother of the powerful Tladis, a protector of his community and heir-apparent to the chieftaincy.

Connie, meanwhile, has signed on for the part of Marang Lebone — a wealthy mother figure from an affluent family who has an influential presence on all her family members.
