Some few days ago Mbare Times published that actress Dineo Langa (nee Moeketsi) was fired from one of Mzansi’s most viewed television soapie, The Queen, reportedly after asking for a three-month break to shoot a movie.
However, a showrunner at Ferguson Films, Lauren Nell has come out to address the reports that Dineo was fired. “Her contract was not terminated. She is still on payroll until the end of May. Dineo was released to go and shoot her movie. Scripts had to be rewritten to accommodate this as she was on an ‘A’ storyline. She was scheduled to return in April, but due to the lockdown, everything has changed. All cast and crew contracts end at the end of May”, she said.
With that being said, we really think Dineo and the Fergusons, i.e, Shona and Connie Ferguson and also the rest of the colleagues were really close not only because of work but they had become a family. She had been with them for four years since the start of the show.
Taking a look at the sweet and beautiful moments they shared every time they were on set or maybe on different occasions they spent together it is surely heartbreaking to hear that they have split.
Hundreds if not thousands of their cute photos together are just everything. Who would have thought that it would end like this? Mrs. Langa is distraught. She thought the Fergusons are family.
