Kuli Roberts joins 'The Queen'
TV and radio personality Kuli Roberts has joined the cast of The Queen.
Roberts, who plays the role of Mildred Sefatsa, has already started shooting for the popular Mzansi Magic telenovela.
She is set to make her debut in July.
Mildred, the Instagram queen is on the prowl as a 41-year-old cougar out for the kill. The fashion icon is married to Bra Socks, a BEE fat cat in his 60s who dotes on her and spoils her with everything she fancies, but Mildred will cheat on him with a Ben 10 in a heartbeat.
Roberts was last seen in a telenovela five years ago and said: “This is such a meaty role that I couldn’t resist. I’ve always loved The Queen and what they do, so joining them is a career highlight. The role of Mildred oozes with so many possibilities that I cannot wait to explore. I thrive on challenges and this is one I look forward to the most, especially after years away from acting.”
Commenting on Kuli's role, executive producer Connie Ferguson said: “We pride ourselves with quality storylines and the most talented cast at The Queen. We are a team of hard-working creatives and we are thrilled to have Kuli in our midst. We look forward to her breathing life into Mildred Sefatsa, I know she will delight audiences and keep them entertained.”
“Kuli is an entertainer who is always willing to push boundaries. We can’t wait to see her in this role!” adds co-executive producer Shona Ferguson.
