Excited Linda Sokhulu speaks of her new role in the upcoming Grown Woman

Veteran actress Linda Sokhulu is excited as she talks about her new role in a drama known as Grown Woman.

Sokhulu will play the role of Tina Hlatshwayo in the series that will be aired on 1Magic and premieres on February 03.

The 46-year-old says she plans to strip herself bare to find her inner funny side in her leading role.

The Durban-born thespian rose to prominence after acting in roles such as Cleo Khuzwayo on SABC1’s Generations, and a lawyer Nikiwe Sibeko on SABC3’s Isidingo among others.

With the saying that goes: “life only begins at 40”, Sokhulu is set to narrate a life of a widow who only starts to enjoy her life at 49, all thanks to a much younger, very hot on-screen new lover Rakwena Ra Kwena played by Bohang Moeko.

“Tina is a businesswoman who is a mother to two children. After the death of her husband whom she had been married to for over 25 years, she has to find herself again and try to bring meaning to her life now that she’s a widow,” explains the 46-year-old actor to SowetanLIVE.

“As Tina looks inwards and figures out who she is and what makes her happy, she encounters a handsome, much younger man who helps her rediscover herself and somehow in the process she falls in love with someone who’s as old as his son….It becomes something unexpected yet thrilling to her.”

The show features a star-studded cast that includes Sandile Mahlangu, who plays Tina’s son Sakhile, and Somizi Mhlongo’s daughter Bahumi Mhlongo, who plays her daughter Noxee.

In addition, some of the household names in the cast are celebrated actresses Nandi Nyembe and Hlubi Mboya.

“I said ‘yes’ to this role because it’s different from the other roles I’ve done. It will help me to explore my range and see what interesting element I can bring to a character such as Tina,” she added.

“I hope I do justice to the character and the storyline.

“Breaking down a new character to viewers tends to be demanding but I hope they will get to resonate with Tina and the journey she embarks on… despite the comedy part of it.”
