Uzalo actress, Noxolo Mathula, who plays Lilly on the show, first started off doing a few cameos - she was then offered a larger role. Seven months later, she’s grown into a much loved character. She’s a hustler, who would do anything to make sure she gets what she wants.
26-year old Mathula chats to us about being a young actress and what it takes to make it in the industry.
What attracted you to this role?
I relate to how fierce she is. She’s a go-getter, a hustler, she knows what she wants.
What character do you enjoy playing more, a younger or older one?
I don’t mind the character, as long as it’s storytelling. Whatever character comes my way, I grab it with both hands.

They should be given a chance. There are so many young great actors that need an opportunity to showcase their talent and the industry always needs that new and fresh faces.
They should be given a chance to prove themselves.
