“Quizzical Pictures is delighted to have Nozipho Chiliza and Bill Chauke joining the team. The youngsters showed professionalism on set and impressed our director, Denny Miller, with their performances,” said Viva Liles-Wilkin, Umlilo Producer.

“Acting takes a great deal of dedication and passion and we hope that the experience these young actors had with the Umlilo cast and crew will inspire them to continue their journey,” she continued.
