Rosemary Zimu continues to grace our TV screens almost non-stop, effortlessly moving from one soapie or show to the next. From previously portraying the sweet Veronica on Isidingo, Lily Juice on Scandal! and Thembeka on Generations: The Legacy to joining Kuli Roberts (Mildred) as her daughter, Warona, on The Queen, there’s no stopping the talented 22-year-old as she blooms right before our eyes.

Every time my agent calls to tell me that I’ve booked a gig. I can’t specify any individual moment because every single one of them has been a shock. And, the good feelings of the people that surround, love and support you through everything.

There’ve been a lot because I’ve been on many sets. But, one that I’ll never forget was when I was still on Scandal! and the creative director, Grace Mahlaba, who used to act on Backstage as Ipeleng, knew my name. I wanted to scream. I almost fainted and I wanted to shout, “OMG, Ipeleng, I love you so much!”
