Get To Know Generation The Legacy Actress Tracy In Real Life
If you are a fan of the Mzansi soap opera Generations, then you must know Zizipho Buti playing the role of Tracy. Over the years, she has gained lots of fans for her over-the-top acting skills. Indeed, she has grown to become one of the leading actresses in the South African film industry.
The Mzansi actress celebrates her birthday on February 8, and in 2020, she turned 25. Not much is known about her childhood and education. But it is known that she graduated from the University of Cape Town with a degree in drama studies.
The star has been very passionate about her acting career. Her mother at first discouraged her from the profession, wanting her to become a lawyer. But now, she is proud of who her daughter has become. In an interview, she says that her favourite quote is “Acting is not about being someone different. It is finding similarities in what is apparently different, then finding myself in there” by Meryl Steep. She reads these words almost every time she engages with a script.
Zizipho has been featured in the South African drama series, Generations: The Legacy, taking the role of Tracy. Tracy is a sex worker who is not ashamed of her job. She takes her occupation seriously and often has to sleep with powerful politicians and businessmen. She maintains her loyalty to Palesa (Busisiwe Xaba), as she continues visiting her in prison.
The actress revealed that when she landed the role, at first, she did not like the character she was given and even did not respond to her agent. She judged her story. But as the show went on, she came to like the character and learnt from her. She is now grateful to the series that she has the opportunity to show the Mzansi the challenges that sex workers face and that they need to be treated with respect. On the seventh season, her character, Tracy, and Karabo Maseko’s character, Luyolo, were promoted to lead stars on the show.
