Shocking: SA actress has died in her JHB home
Veteran actress Thembsie Times has died! She is well-known as Maria Zibula from SABC2 soapie 7de Laan.
The soapie publicity manager Kayleen Bessit confirmed the news to TshisaLIVE on Friday, telling the publication that the actress died on Thursday.
“It is, unfortunately, true. As far as I understand she passed yesterday [Thursday]”. The soapie publicist said.
She said an official statement would soon follow.
The 70-year-old actress played the character of Maria for 13-years before she left the show back in 2016.
“She’s obviously not been part of the show for a very long time. She’s always been an integral part of the show”. The publicist said.
Maria, a kind-hearted straight-talking but money-loving domestic worker for Hilda and Oubaas, kept the couple’s flat clean and helped them maintain it many times.
Even though she was popular as Maria, the actress has featured in other big productions such as Cry the beloved and Beat the drum to mention a few.
After she left 7de Laan, it was reported that the actress would invest her time into dealing with church concerned matters.
The actress was a mother of three and a grandmother of six and she lived in Johannesburg with two of her grandchildren.
