Dawn Thandeka King who plays the role of MaZet on Lockdown, split from her husband three years ago and has faced many dark days since. She is in a much better space how and, with a new love in her life, wants to inspire others to find strength and healing.

Speaking to TshisaLIVE at the launch of the fifth season of the hit Showmax drama series, Dawn said from day one onset of the show, she found support from her co-stars as she battled “the demons” in her personal life.


I just came from a 13-year marriage so I would not want to rush into anything. I am happy the way I am, and I am not pressured into doing anything. I am just enjoying being a mom.

Dawn said she was open with her children about the struggles she went through after her divorce, and said she has found strength from opening up about her battles with depression.

I realise the importance of the platform I have. I guess I will forever speak about depression and about the importance of taking care of yourself because taking care of myself was the one thing that brought me back.
