I love Twiggy - says Queen Motlatle

Queen Motlatle is an international makeup artist with a Masters Degree in Special Effects From Hollywood. She's an actress, best known for her role as Twiggy on the second season of the SABC2 sitcom, Skwizas.

She told GoXtra News that acting was always part of her life growing up, “I could not avoid acting, it decided on me. I knew secretly at a very young age that I was an actress.” Said Motlatle. She describes Twiggy as a bubbly, effortless, competitive and flamboyant woman that loves men, compared to Queen who’s shy.

She excitedly told us, “I love Twiggy and I would love to do more episodes of the sitcom,” she added, “I remember when Mum’ Lillian Dube approached me, she said she saw a little Lillian in me.” said Motlatle.

She has worked with Lion King, District 9, the opening and closing of the 2010 soccer world cup as the key designer and makeup artist. Her main highlights include grooming South Africa’s current president, Jacob Zuma and former president Thabo Mbeki and Nelson Mandela.

She advises aspiring actors/actress to at least get educated so that they can have something to fall back on later in life. “Education is very important, please study and take acting as a hobby.” Concluded Queen Motlatle.

She also told us that she’s very aware of her actions because she’s a mother to an 18 year old son looking up to her.

Skwizas is a South African television sitcom created by Lillian Dube which follows a group of elderly friends (“Skwizas”) as they flurry through the idiosyncrasies of life in the Skywards Retirement Village and wrestle with dwindling pensions, lost careers, jealousy and the prospect of late-life income.

  • The sitcom airs on SABC2 but ended last week - let's hope for another great season!
