Local actress, Nambitha Mpumlwana has taken on a different approach to acting in Sanlam’s latest four- part podcast, "The 200 Year Old".
Mpumlwana plays the voice of Lesedi, a healthy and wise 200-year-old woman. She co-stars with actor Thapelo Mokoena, who plays her "four-generation" great grandson, Sam.
The podcast catapults listeners into the year 2218 as it explores the future like never before and tackles some of the biggest questions based on current science and future forecasts by leading experts.
Popular for her roles on soapies like "Generations," "Ashes To Ashes" and national and international film roles in "Tsotsi," "Beyond Borders" and "Invictus," Mpumlwana is comfortable with being in front of the camera, so it’s no wonder she first laughed at the idea of being involved in a podcast.
She said she was always under the impression that a podcast was where you would listen to a radio interview that you have missed.
