Catherine Kamau earned the role of Celina on the popular TV show Mother-In-Law. Her character as a struggling married woman won the hearts of many.
After months of excelling at her role, Celina exited the show unexpectedly. She told Kalekye Mumo on Talk Central that her disagreement with the management of the show led to that. And yes, she quit without a plan.
“FAMILIARITY BRINGS CONTEMPT AND SOMETIMES PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND YOUR VALUE UNTIL YOU LEAVE. THE SITUATION WAS GETTING SO UNCOMFORTABLE, I WAS BREAKING AWAY, I WANTED TO DO OTHERS THINGS. I JUST RESIGNED WITHOUT A PLAN, THERE WAS SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED.”
She adds that she left begrudgingly.
“LOOKING BACK, IT WAS GOD’S TIME, IT WAS TIME FOR ME TO LEAVE BUT I WISH I LEFT IN A NICE (WAY) BUT THE CASTS, WE STILL FAMILY. I DIDN’T WANT TO LEAVE BUT I HAD TO LEAVE. ONE OF THOSE SITUATIONS.”
Currently, she is acting in Sue And Jonnie, a show that earned her the award for the best actress in the Kalasha Awards.
