Numerous actors and actresses have spoken out about the treatment they receive on sets and whilst The Fergusons have never been known for treating their staff badly whilst on set, they are known for showing them the door in a bitter way.
Ever since Mara Louw outed the Fergusons for blacklisting her and refusing to pay her accordingly. In 2019 the actress during the POWER Dialogue on POWER Talk spoke about how negotiations for a higher salary with the Fergusons went south.
“And then suddenly I’m told by Shona [Ferguson], who is a child and every other producer that ‘Your fee is too high. Excuse me! If you want to pay me peanuts go and find a monkey. I have never received a penny of royalties,” said the actress.
Despite allegations that The Fergusons exploit talent, they have maintained that it’s all part of the business.
Speaking in a live Instagram chat with Themba Ndaba who portrays Brutus, Connie Ferguson responded to a question about why people getting fired.
“This is a soap, it’s a Telenovela…characters come and go, that’s how soap operates. It is for story and sometimes to introduce another story, but characters come and go. This is not something exclusive to The Queen…It happens everywhere, and it happens every time,” responded Connie Ferguson.
