"Even though our characters are different, I identify with her (Boniswa) will to fight and defend the people who mean a lot to her," Lusanda said in a recent interview with BONA magazine.

Lusanda says she also uses her own experiences as a wife and mother to help nail her character. "I love my family and would do anything to protect them, so I get her there," Lusanda adds. 

 As a fun loving person herself Lusanda says the only thing she wishes her character would do is lighten up a bit and stop being so serious. M
