Connie Ferguson Makes It To Forbes African Icons list
Actress and movie producer Connie Ferguson has earned lifetime recognition after making it on the Forbes African Icon list.
The South African actress and her husband are well respected figures in the SA film industry for their passion and key contribution to the growth of the sector.
Speaking to Forbes Africa, Connie said her three biggest highlights have been playing the role of Karabo Moraka in Generations, playing Mavis in Rockville, and her current role as Harriet Khoza in The Queen.
“My highlights as an actor have been my time at Generations, a show that allowed me the opportunity to build my brand, my role as Mavis in Rockville, our debut show as executive producers, and my current role as Harriet Khoza in The Queen.
Although the different awards received over the years are humbling and appreciated, the loyal fans and viewers that diligently follow and appreciate my work are who make it all worthwhile,” she said.
Meanwhile things hasn’t been all rosy and great for the movie mogul especially of late. Connie received a lot of hate recently after donning a jumpsuit and bob wig in a recent cover photo for Glamour South Africa.
This came after Glamour announced the Generation actress would feature in the magazine in April.
Taking to their official Twitter account Glamour announced: “A powerhouse: A Businesswoman, Actress and Mother @Connie_Ferguson opens up about everything from body insecurities, mental health, career, family life and fitness in our body and mind issue. #GLAMxConnie.”
