JOHANNESBURG – ACTRESS Ratidzo Mambo will make an eagerly-anticipated return to the small screen next month when she stars in “Moms,” the comedy scheduled for the Zimbabwe International Film Festival (ZIFF).
It ends a hiatus of more than ten years for the actress best known for her lead role as Linda Karombo in Yellow Card.”
Mambo, who moved to Australia soon after Yellow Card, re-located to Los Angeles a few years ago to pursue her growing acting career, is joined in “Moms” by other Zimbabwean actors such as Danai Gurira (Walking Dead), Tongayi Chirisa (Sleepy Hollow) and Rick Cosnett (The Flash).
She collaborated on Moms, which she co-wrote and stars in alongside Dioni Michelle Collins and Directed by Rita Baghdadi.
“Moms” is a short comedy series about moms and daughters, played by the same actress.
Friends Mickey (Collins) and Pati (Mambo) are aspiring actresses living in Los Angeles.
When their mothers come to visit, they are let loose in Hollywood with a plan to help their daughters get work.
Mambo will without doubt be the main attraction on October 11 at ZIFF.
Since her move to LA, besides appearing in Pharrel William’s music Video, Marilyn Monroe, she starred briefly opposite Gwyneth Paltrow in GLEE’s 100th Episode and she is currently working on an ‘untitled’ Independent Feature Film.
