In a sit-down with our latest cover star, South African TV personality and actor, Pearl Thusi and British-born South African actor and writer, Kate Liquorish, we chat about all things Queen Sono – from their most memorable moments from filming days, to how to overcome Imposter Syndrome (defined as a collection of feelings of inadequacy that persist despite evident success), which plagues so many women (and men) around the world.
When asked about her fondest memories, Pearl admits, “There was a day I cried because [Kate and myself] didn’t get to finish our fight scene because of time constraints, over time and general pressures on set. I think that was when I realised how invested I was – not just in the scene but in the idea of everyone being aligned with the vision, because we are making history and doing what no one has ever done before.”
Taking the conversation slightly away from the days on set to how working on the project has changed the actors, Kate opens up to SCHICK about something more personal. “I think [Pearl and I] talk a lot about Imposter Syndrome. I’m like a small, unknown indie actress and Pearl is a massive celebrity! So, I’ve often felt like a bit of an outsider but I really feel like with everything I’ve done [in this series], I’ve really shown what I can do.”
The co-actors go on to discuss their plans post-premiere, which takes place at The Joburg Theatre tonight, and more!
