Award-winning actor Rapulana Seiphemo needs no introduction. Best known for his roles in Isidingo, Muvhango and Generations, he now joins the cast of The Queen.

Rapulana will play Hector Sebata, a devious villain. Not all is as it seems when it comes to Hector. Behind his charm hides a wolf in sheep's skin. He is understanding and supportive as a high-ranking police colonel in Tembisa but has a penchant for the narcotics trade. Hector's presence will shake the Khoza family to the core.

About his roles Rapulana shares: "Hector Sebata is going to be the most exciting and challenging character I have had to create. I am looking forward to being on The Queen and working with the cast and crew. I also trust that the viewers will be entertained by what Hector gets up to.'"

The Queen executive producers Connie and Shona Ferguson welcomed Rapulana: "We are thrilled to have Rapulana on board. We have both worked with him as actors and have the highest level of respect for him as a performer and a professional. He is a world-class actor with an impressive portfolio, who is loved by many. We can't wait to see him in the role of Hector Sebata."

Season 5 of The Queen kicks off in July, weekdays at 21:00 on Mzansi Magic (DStv 161).
