Monday night’s episode of Mzansi Magic’s The Queen left fans reeling when Jerry Maake (Shona Ferguson) broke down after finding his sister, Boi (Marah Louw), had been keeping secrets from him.
While fans were snatching the tissues, Shona’s wife, The Queen actress Connie Ferguson, also admitted she cried during the episode and had to be comforted by Shona – who reminded her he was just acting.
“Watching @Shona_Ferguson cry like that on #TheQueenMzansi ripped my heart 2 shreds! [sic]” she tweeted.
“Funny how he’s the one consoling me now telling me “baby it’s just acting” like I don’t know! Now I’m crying & laughing at the same damn time! Bravo Mr. Sho!”
As the internet went wild over Shona’s acting, viewers and celebrities said the 48-year-old deserved an award for his role.
