SA star Actors who were fired from the Queen


Ferguson Films has shown in recent years that it is not ashamed to fire and hire its cast. In recent years, however, the media have veered off and fired actors for the wrong reasons. 

The Fergusons defended themselves, saying it was an industry for characters to come and go. Below are some of the actors who were fired from The Queen's Fergusons. 

Ntando Duma 

Social media caught fire with some news from show business after various sources confirmed that Ntando Duma had been removed by the Queen. The star actress is rumored to have been eliminated after it was revealed that she had landed a new appearance. 

Well, this isn't the first time the Fergusons have fired a star actor after landing an appearance. 

Cindy Mahlangu 

Cindy Mahlangu was shown the exit door once after she had landed an appearance on etv's drama series Scandal. Later, show runners called her after the numbers dropped. 

Loyiso MacDonald 

MacDonald, who played the role of Kagiso Khoza, was recently eliminated by the Queen. His departure comes just a few months after the show recently lost several seasoned cast members.

He is the second actor to leave the Queen in a matter of weeks. Not long ago, Mzansi witnessed the heartbreaking departure of Thato, played by Xolani Mayekiso. 

However, according to rumors, the star actor had a fight with the show's runners. Well that's not the case with veteran entertainment commentator 

According to entertainment news commentator Phil Mphela, Loyiso gave up on his own request. The actor is reported to have finished with the role and is ready to move on. 

Vatiswa Ndara 

One can also get out of trouble with good intentions. In 2019, multi-award-winning actress Vatiswa Ndara wrote an open letter to Minister Nathi Mthethwa. 

She spoke about the abuse, exploitation and intimidation that she and other actors in the film Mzansi Magic Igazi suffered while producing Ferguson Films. Since then she has not gotten a concert on the big screen. It certainly appears that she has been blackmailed. 

Dineo Langa 

Despite being on the show since 2016, actress and television host Dineo Langa was fired from The Queen after asking for time off to make another movie.

However, despite her free time, she later received an email from the Fergusons asking her not to return to work. She played the role of Kea Khoza. 

Seal Maake ka Ncube 

Veteran actor Seal Maake ka Ncube, who used to play the role of Kgosi, also left the Queen under a cloud. Ka Ncube, however, did not provide any details on what caused him to leave the show, instead saying that the Fergusons were the only ones capable of revealing the confusing details behind his departure from the show. 

Rami Chuene 

On a spectacular roller coaster, Rami Chuene was fired by the Queen after weighing herself in support of Vatiswa. Rami Chuene was one of the most popular cast members on The Queen.

Unfortunately, her character, Gracious Mabuza, was killed with the Ferguson family after an alleged backstage drama. Fortunately for her, she returned to the industry after the drama. 

Marah Louw 

Marah Louw, however, is among those who applauded Vatiswa Ndara for writing an open letter highlighting the alleged abuse of actors at Ferguson Films.

The veteran actress also said that she faced some consequences after speaking out against the company. Like Vatiswa, the veteran actress has not worked anywhere else since. 

Mlamli Mangacala 

Actor Mlamli Mangcala, who played the role of Captain Sthembiso Radebe in The Queen, also left the show after accusing lies and deception. Mangcala claimed that he was being exploited by the Fergusons, who, according to him, were basically making him pay to appear on television. 

According to Mangcala, he had to pay his own travel and accommodation expenses when he traveled from Cape Town to Johannesburg to film. He also said that he never received the promised salary, as he would only get a raise of R100 if he negotiated his contract.
