Yvonne Left At The Alter: Scandal! Nuptials End In Tears

Published

on

It was a setting right off a story book. One could be forgiven for using “fairy-tale-wedding” to describe the scenic view and the elegant get-up that the actors went through to capture the scene. However, the reality is that no wedding is without its hiccups. Scandal! characters Yvonne Thebe (Kgomotso Christopher) and Damon Bradbury (Craig Urbani) were set to melt South African hearts when they finally tied the knot after a rocky start to their relationship. The couple had survived multiple attempts at driving a wedge between them from the hands of siblings, business partners to past lovers. Thus it was a befitting  conclusion to wed, silence all the naysayers once and for all.

Speaking to Craig, he’s description of the onscreen romance is a combination of high level of acting prowess and good chemistry. “What sets the acting apart depends on who you playing against and opposite and who you acting with. She’s (Kgomotso) such a professional, everything is very unforced, nothing is pretentious. As long as you as her co-actor are ready to go and have done your prep the magic happens. It helps if you clique as people. I adore her. I always look forward to my scenes with her” Craig gushes.

In similar vein, Kgomotso sang Craig’s praises, attributing the good vibes seen on screen to great acting. “I don’t believe in good vibes, I think Craig is a professional, I am a professional, he’s trained, I’m trained. I think good vibes is what viewers experience when all those elements work together at the same time. Also being comfortable as an artist that you in good hands of a professional, talented and prepared co-actor” enthused Kgomotso.

“We’re not messing around, we’re not dealing with people that are trying to horn their craft, dealing with people who are at the top of their game”.

With the wedding taking a turn for the worst, we broached the subject of what happens after with much caution. “Ironically, Damon came in playing games and found a kindred spirit in Yvonne, someone who was a grifter like him, someone difficult to trust, there was always an agenda. But I do believe that he fell a lot heavier than he would care to admit. The later story will reveal perhaps that Damon’s feelings are much more real than he might thinks” admitted Craig without revealing too much about the relationship. Regarding Damons charges, fans will have to tune in to see what happens. “We’re yet to find out if jail time is on the cards, but we’ll definitely see an unraveling of who Damon Bradbury really is, enough with the half-truths, the lies, we find out how he actually feels about Yvonne”.

Having dawned a dress flown in from Bahrain and left at the alter, Yvonne is left to pick up the pieces. Whether she picks the pieces up alone is a different matter all together. “This character is so delicious that me as the actress I don’t even know. She’s a woman who makes sure that she  always has a few bees buzzing around the queen bee and therefore there are no guarantees. She always makes sure that there are one, two or three more options” shares Kgomotso. Catch Scandal! weekdays at 7:30PM on etv to see what unfolds next.

Published

on

Nambitha Ben-Mazwi is the latest addition to the local soapie and will make her debut on Friday, 8 February.

She joins Scandal! as Chardonay, better known as Shado, a foxy slay queen, blessee and host of a secret gentlemen’s club.

Shado grew up in poverty but is not ashamed of it. She started odd waitressing jobs and managed to make enough money to register for a BCom degree.

She is streetwise and worldly, and she knows how to use her beauty and brains to get what she wants. To top it all, men want to be with her and women want to be like her. Appearance is everything to her, and if shopping were a human being, it would be her BFF.

“I’ve steered away from soapies for so long, so I am so excited to be entering the soapie world. I’m also excited to be back with the e.tv family and have loved every minute spent with the warm and welcoming Scandal! team,” says Nambitha.

With her ruthlessness, secrets and ambition, Shado is definitely going to change the face of ‘slay queening.’
