Tema Sebopedi was labeled an It girl of the South African acting industry as she kept landing jobs left, right and center back in the day. Everyone knew who she was and many productions wanted to work with her because of her class and talent. These days we barely see her on Television productions, and people wonder what happened to the actress as it looks like she has disappeared and is no longer talked about as much.
Many people know Tema for her role in Isidingo, where she played Sechaba’s love interest and wife. Lerato was the go-to person when it came to style and anything beauty-related on the soapie as she ran a salon. Sechaba was played by Motlatsi Mafatshe, known as Molefe in House of Zwide.
The two were a power couple who chased after a better life, focused on securing the bag, and sometimes used unconventional methods. Despite all their ups and downs, their love stayed strong in the telenovela and made them both household names. In the past, Tema was juggling several roles and was also part of the cast of 90 Plein Street, Angel’s song, and many other shows.
The most recent role that the actress has held is one on The Throne playing Tshego in the drama series. After that role, the actress has disappeared from the entertainment scene and is not landing any jobs playing pretend. Given her talent, people are not sure why she is not getting jobs anymore, and they hope it’s not another case of an IT girl who is hard to work with.
Temo is still active on her Instagram page and last posted in May on her birthday celebrating one more year of her life. She is also still booked for commercials and recently appeared in an advert for DSTV as the girl with blue hair in a salon. Apart from that, she uses her Instagram to influence people and usually shares nail inspiration posts
