Dropping Out of College For Netflix Series

After schooling at Reddam House School, Qamata decided to take a year gap to focus on her acting career; fortunately, her parents understood and did not oppose her decision. Her initial plan was to move to America and study at New York Film Academy, but later her mind changed, and she joined the University of Cape Town.

Meanwhile, she started an internship to know more about the entertainment industry, and during that, she met famous casting director Kutlwano Ditsele, who offered her the role of Puleng Khumalo in “Blood & Water.”
