The Film making mogul is the brains behind some of the country’s most esteemed productions including The Queen, The Throne, Igazi, and Rockville. Connie and her husband Shona Ferguson have established many up-and-coming actors and turned them into household names with a legion of fans. Many of the great local content we see on Mzansi Magic is partially attributed to the great work of Ferguson Films, owned by the couple.
The actress who plays Harriet Khoza on The Queen said that one needs to get an agent that will assist them in getting an audition or a role because sometimes they get an influx of C.V’s but it often difficult to contact and negotiate with actors.
“People need to pester their agents because the bottom line is that we send out briefs to agents, we don’t have one on one contact with actors.
“We do get a lot of actors sending through their C.V’s and their profiles but it’s difficult to try and contact and negotiate with an actor, directly and an actor that you’ve never worked with before so it’s easier to just go via agents.
So again, we send out briefs and what we get from agents is what we work with. Actors really need to work closely with their agents and ask them, ‘What’s happening? I need work, What’s happening with Ferguson Films? Are there any briefs coming in?
So actors really need to be more pro-active when it comes to working with their agents.” Said Connie.
