Lebogang Msiza could be playing one of the most annoying, cruel character on The Queen but when it comes to acting skills, he is a force to be reckoned with.
The 29 year old actor hails from Kwa-Thema. He is also a musician, model and dancer. He started his acting career with an appearance on Generations: The Legacy in 2015 and has had roles in telenovela such as Rhythm City, Lithapo, Maseko Ties, Ring of Lies, Now or never and MTV Shuga Down South.
Lebogang is a BCom Accounting drop out. His parents wanted him to have a formal qualification it the actor dropped out of varsity to follow his passion of acting. He says he felt like Accounting was suffocating him.
On The Queen, Lebogang plays Clive Mthembu who is Akhona (Khanya Khangisa)'s lover. Clive had been trending on social media since the character was introduced on the telenova last November. He gets under a lot of people's skin as an abusive, arrogant, controlling and manipulaticr towards Akhona.
He told Drum Magazine:
"The brief for Clive was very clear, and that was to look at her as if I am looking into her soul."
"So I have been very intentional about maintaining eye contact."
".. And that no matter what else is going on, to always keep the focus on her."
