Kuli Roberts makes her return to the small screen in Mzansi Magic’s, The Queen.
The all-round entertainer and performer will play Mildred Sefatsa and will make her debut in the telenovela in July.
Mildred, the Instagram queen, is on the prowl as a 41-year-old cougar out for the kill. She is married to Bra Socks, a devious 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.
The mother of one is not shy to get into the ring with her 25-year-old daughter Warona, for the attention of the best guy in the room. While most mothers would cringe if their daughter’s boyfriend hit on them, Mildred jumps at the opportunity.
As a housewife, socialite and good-doer, Mildred is in Johannesburg for a charity project, and viewers meet her at a dinner party where she takes an instant liking to one of The Queen’s bachelors, and she wastes no time to pounce.
Kuli, who was last seen in a telenovela some five years ago, says: “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.”
Connie Ferguson of Ferguson Films and The Queen executive producer comments: “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.
The Queen airs weeknights at 21:00 on Mzansi Magic (DStv 161).
