Mara Louw takes on Ferguson Films
Share this article:
JOHANNESBURG - Actress Mara Louw is trending on Twitter for slamming Ferguson Films for blacklisting her and refusing to compensate her accordingly.
Louw was speaking as a panelist during the POWER Dialogue on POWER Talk on Tuesday. Louw said that in 2003, she earned R65 000 for her role in the TV show Muvhango.
“And then suddenly I’m told by Shona [Ferguson], who is a child and every other producer that ‘Your fee is too high. Excuse me! If you want to pay me peanuts go and find a monkey. I have never received a penny of royalties,” Louw said during the discussion.
Take a look at how South Africans reacted to her criticism:
Mara Louw must open her own production house and pay her actors millions then. Shona didnt become successful to make them rich. These people are just jealous of the Fergusons, coz honestly after her boring role on the Queen, where is Mara Louw now acting and making millions?? pic.twitter.com/IFGLCsSyL8— Amazement (@Amaze_M) October 15, 2019

Another Week & the only production company being named is The Fegusons. Are these actors truthfully saying that the problem in the industry is only this one company? After Mama Mara Louw left The Queen did she get other gigs that paid her what she deemed was her worth?— SuperStar (@Star7Siya) October 15, 2019

Only idiots think Mara Louw should start her own production company. If Woolworths is too expensive, you don't start your own supermarket. You go to Shoprite. pic.twitter.com/g7SNNOt3AR— King Beef😡 (@HuddyHackle) October 15, 2019
Mam Mara Louw statement about being older than Shona reminds me of those older colleagues who don’t wanna be fixed even when they’re wrong because they’re older. Why should the validity of your point be based upon the age disparity we have? It's aggravating.— ukhanki (@TboozeSA) October 15, 2019
