“As my last day in YV’s shoes approaches, I can’t help but reminisce about the thrill ride it’s been to navigate this gem of a character, gifted to me by the dedicated and talented Scandal! writers. Scandal! will always hold a special place in my heart because through the efforts, talents, and love of the cast and crew. I grew so much as an artist and experienced so many career milestones, including my SAFTA Best Actress win and recent Best Supporting Actress nomination,” Kgomotso added.

Fans can still look forward to loads of drama from her character in the coming two months until her exit, with Yvonne set to attend to an emergency involving a critical family member who desperately needs her attention.
