Meet the cast of Unmarried
Season 2 of dramedy series Unmarried is on Showmax now, and the ladies are back in all their glory!
Here are the three leading ladies and where you know them from. We met them all in Season 1, but you may need a refresher – or you could just rewatch the 13-episode Season 1 for more fun.
Brenda (Renate Stuurman) is the show’s narrator. She’s 32, career driven and married to her best friend ever Donald (Fezile Makhanya).
“They’ve been together for 10 years. They are partners in life and love. She places a high value on her marriage, the security she finds with Donald provides a shield from the challenges of the world. She considers herself to be in a very happy marriage. Her life is organised exactly the way she dreamt it would be. I think what’s holding her back from feeling completely fulfilled is that having a child is the one milestone missing from her life,” says Renate.
You know Renate from… drama shows like Thula’s Vine (as lead character Thula), Roxanne in The Mating Game and Pam in crime series The Lab.
Lesego (Keke Mphuthi) is Brenda’s bestie. She’s a slay queen 24/7 and she’ll never let you forget it. She’s always dressed in designer threads and looks like she’s just stepped off the international catwalk. Will she find love this time round? If she’s willing to open her heart a little she might. Don’t forget that Lesego and Thembi were the ones who broke Donald’s infidelity news to Brenda in Season 1, so she’s going to be supporting her friend a little more this time round too.
Did you know that her cousin has the same name – Keketso Mphuthi – and is an actress too? She played Tlali on Isidingo.
Thembi (Thembisa Mdoda) is Brenda’s stay-at-home-mom bestie. In Season 1, she played shoulder-to-cry-on when Brenda’s marriage crumbled, but this season she’s going to be wanting to do the crying herself. She’s been out of the love game for 15 years and it’s time she gets her groove back. But at the same time, Thembi is making her mark in the business world too – she’s got a new career waiting to be unleashed on the public.
You know Thembisa from… soapies like Isibaya (as Amanda) and The Road (as Thabisile). Thembisa also hosted hit reality show Our Perfect Wedding Seasons 6 and 7, as well as being a contestant in Dancing With The Stars – all four shows are available on Showmax.
