Celebrated media personality Janet Mbugua has made TV comeback, however, as an actress.
The TV girl will be gracing the screens with a role on TV series Monica.
“My character is like Olivia Pope without the marital scandals,” wrote Mbugua.
She added that her role at the TV series came a t a perfect time despite being not sure if it would suit her.
“I always feel like you cannot necessarily double back. My background is in news anchoring. Acting was something I did because I like to embrace new challenges and experiences
“To be honest, I thought I had gotten that bug out of my system although I enjoyed it of course, and then this role came my way,” she said.
The mother of two also revealed that she has turned down several acting projects due to having a demanding career and a young family.
“I have been offered roles over the years but I had to say no for various reasons. I did not have a family of my own when I starred in Rush, so at the time, I did not mind the crazy filming hours” said Mbugua.
“But when I started growing my family, I was very cognizant about not stretching myself. Suddenly I was a new mum, an anchor, a brand ambassador, a moderator, a wife. That is a lot,” she added.
Mbugua got into the acting scene in 2014 with a lead role in a Kenyan drama dubbed Rush.
