After joining the popular South African soapie, Muvhango, Sharon Seno has proved that she is a force to be reckoned with. The local model and former beauty queen has had her fair share of the limelight in South Africa, showing that Botswana’s talent merits international platforms. In her twist and turns, she has proved critics wrong and notched up her acting game.
Seno is now a famous personality in South Africa who needs no introduction. She made her entry into the limelight after making the Top 5 for Miss Botswana 2013. Years later she landed the role of Marang Motsoaledi in Muvhango in which she was an executive PA who working for Moliehi Motsamai and James Motsamai at Qalabosha. She is one of Botswana’s best home grown talents, joining the likes of Shona and Connie Ferguson who are established in South Africa’s film industry.
Over time Seno’s role has seen her rub shoulders with Muvhango’s most seasoned actors and actresses. Her character took her career to peaks after having an affair with the notorious KK and then with James. Although the screen couple was loved by her fans, unfortunately the two had to end their love affair.
Seno made her debut in Muvhango alongside Maxwell Dichi and Kabo Timela whose roles left an impressive mark even though they were short lived. The flawless actress was fortunate enough to have her role continue to this day, leaving good impressions on a daily basis. While many people blamed her for trying too hard, that did not stop her from shaming haters and taking her acting career to new heights.
Love or hate her, Seno has grown in her role and evolved to become a more natural actress in the tough entertainment industry of South Africa. While many creatives have halted their craft unsure of their capacity to stand the test of time, she has grown her name to become the next big thing in the film industry. But Seno has had her fair share of challenges, especially when she was still finding herself in the industry. She has admitted to have struggled with self-confidence but is thankful to God that she had outgrown this by the time she was scouted to become a model.
The 27-year old began to shoot in 2019 after a series of auditions for Muvhango after being scouted here in Botswana where Muvhango was in search of diverse personalities from different cultural backgrounds to bring on set. The auditions were organised by Michael Mosipidi of ABOSPA and Duma Ka Ndlovu of Word of Mouth Productions.
One of the things that intrigued her the most was when she was reading Marang’s biography for the first time and found that she and the character had similar traits. “When I first read Marang’s biography, I was shocked because I have some of her traits,” she said.
Although Muvhango barely shows intimacy on set, that was not the case for James and Marang after their kissing on the show that triggered reactions from the viewers, especially that it was a passionate kiss.
Though it has been two years now since she has been on the popular soapie, the beautiful actress has her sights on Hollywood. She also has plans to produce locally housed movies in Botswana.
