Uzalo’s Nomcebo Real Age Leaves Tongues Wagging
If Nomcebo’s real age is anything to go by, then it is without a doubt that the Uzalo makeup and wardrobe department is the best at altering actors’ looks, so they can get in character, in Soapville.
Most Uzalo fans are /often surprised when they see the actors on social media when they are not in character.
We have actresses like Gugu Gumede who plays MaMlambo on the soapie.
The Uzalo crew dresses her up and makes her face up, to look older than she actually is.
Then we have characters like Nonka and Zekhethelo, who look to younger than their ages.
Nombulelo Mhlongo is also another actress who managed to fool us into thinking she was older.
Although Nombulelo Mhlongo left Uzalo after her storyline came to a conclusion, she left a mark on the fans.
Nombulelo Mhlongo came on the soapie as Nomcebo.
Nomcebo was9habanga’s ex and Khehla’s mother.
She came to KwaMashu to investigate on what happened to Khehla and exact justice.
Those still familiar with that storyline, it was Gabisile who killed Khehla.
It goes without saying that Nombulelo Mhlongo totally killed her role on Uzalo and the makeup department did good work in making her look older.
She even dressed up like those older church aunties at some point.
Fans might just be surprised to learn that Nombulelo Mhlongo is only 28 years old, yeah you heard that right, she hasn’t even hit her 30s.
The actress birth date is listed as 9 May 1992 and she was born in Pongola, KwaZulu-Natal.
Nombulelo Mhlongo can now be seen on the new eTV medical drama Durban Gen, where she plays the role of Sne Mtshali and this time she looks more her age.
Kudos to the actress for having such a good range.
