We chat to South African Actress Nelisa Mchunu, who many know for her role portraying Fikile on Uzalo, about her journey with the show and her thoughts on beauty and feminity in 2020.
Nelisa made her television debut on Isidingo, but now plays a leading support role in the local soap opera on SABC 1.
She discovered her love and passion for acting at a very young age, so it was a natural progression for her to choose to study Dramatic Arts in High School. She then went on to do a BA in Media Studies at WITS University.
Nelisa is passionate about people and giving back, so continues to look for opportunities to give back and restore hope to people who are in need. Including a soup kitchen where she's rallied up a number of well known influencers to give back at Abalindi Welfare Society’s Children’s Home.
