“I have a baby face so at least I do not have to worry about looking too much older than Aya. The age gap is quite big and I’m thankful that even at home I stay with teenagers, so I know what they are into nowadays and how they speak. Also I have been there before so all I have to do is tap into my 15 year old self to help Aya come alive.”

The actress shares how Lusanda has always been her rock and how she hypes her up while on set

“Because I have such a strong theatre background, I would sometimes get nervous when I first started. I felt that I was not doing enough and Lusanda would encourage me by giving me pep talk, telling me to relax because I’ve got this. I am grateful for that,” she adds.

Ayanda’s dream was to be an astronaut so that she can be closer to the stars. Acting however is helping her do the same except that the stars close to her are humans.
