Zola Nombona’s approach to having a baby changes all her plans
New mommy and actress Zola Nombona has shared details of her first acting gig after maternity leave, and was glad to announce she has still got it!
The actress took an opportunity to bake and birth to her son, Cebelihle, and has been off for a couple of months. Zola took to her Instagram to pen the whole experience of performing on a movie she’s sure will impress Mzansi.
“Yesterday I wrapped my first onscreen offering since being a mom,” her post began.
Zola shared that the film may be a funny and yet tragic depiction of the country’s current state. She revealed that while she knows she’s an excellent actress, nerves almost got the higher of her.
“Look I used to be nervous and excited but I remember how on my first day, on my first take, Busi Mtshali said: ‘Friend, you bought this, trust yourself.’ She called the slate and finished off by saying, ‘Welcome back Zola’. Yoohoo, the way I had to fight back tears before they might call action 😂 and that I killed it, Enkosi Mazda.”
The new mommy expressed her gratitude over how she was ready to revisit to figure just five months after parturition. She admitted that stepping into a replacement routine was shaky initially but her network held her down.
“I’m so grateful that in my fifth month of being a mom I could return to my passion and act! the method of leaving my baby to travel work was a touch shaky initially (for me) but I’ve been blessed with a tremendous nanny who loves and protects my son together with her all. going to work without having to stress if my baby is OK did me such a lot of justice because I could specialize in work fully,” she said.
The actress went on to reveal that the film she was performing on is produced by Mandla N and Black Brain Pictures. She thanked them for trusting her to bring her A-game and thanked her boo Thomas Gumede for always affirming her and ensuring she brought her A-game.
