ACTRESS Jessica Nkosi has bid goodbye to The Queen.
Her character, Thando, appeared in the telenovela for the last time on Friday, 22 July, when she died in a shoot-out.
Thando was a fan favourite because of her violent nature and loved guns.
Jessica took to social media to confirm that she was leaving the show, thanking Connie Ferguson and late Shona for giving her an opportunity to play Thando.
“And just like that… Thando Sebata is out! The award-winning villain. Really loved this bad-a** chick. Thank you to Mr Sho and Connie for trusting me to play Thando. I’ve really had the greatest time. Thank you to everyone at Ferguson Films; I love you guys. Now, on to the next,” she wrote.
Her fans wished her luck with her future endeavours, sharing that they could not wait to see what she did next.
Her colleague Lorraine Moropa, who plays Olerato, said she had respect for Jessica’s craft.
“She was a bad-a** for real! I have mad love and respect for your craft Jess! Love you always,” she wrote.
Then Miss SA 2020 second runner-up Natasha Joubert commented: “No! Can’t wait to see what you tackle next!”
Negocity 2010 said Jessica should get more action roles.
“One thing you must know .. you are the best in action. I hope and pray that you will get another action role. You killed this Thando role. You don’t belong here; Hollywood is waiting for you.”
