Warren Masemola Comes Back To Our TV Screens
Former The River and SAFTA award-winning actor, Warren Masemola has secured a supporting role on the upcoming show, Isiphindiselo which is produced by ETV. Gossiphotspot reported yesterday that Zamani Mbatha who currently plays the role of Pule Ndlovu on Rhythm City will also be joining the show as a leading role in the upcoming novella. It is unclear for now when Isiphindiselo will debut on our screens.
Both Mbatha and Masemola have gone through some hard times in their careers with Mbatha having been involved in two shows that got cancelled within 5 years of his career and Masemola going broke at one point of his career.
Masemola previously took to Instagram to reveal that his character on Tjovitjo which is now available on Netflix was the most challenging character he’s ever played in his career. The award-winning actor also shocked his followers when he opened up about being broke and not getting roles when he just graduated:
“This has been my most challenging role to date, the realness drew me in. It is the state of the nation at the moment. So much of it is heartbreaking to watch because it is so real. It is the places and the people that the country doesn’t normally see on TV.
I’ve been very broke before. When I finished drama school, starting out as an actor, it was really tough. I shared a two-bedroom cottage with a friend of mine … it was six months of being really bad. We had to do odd jobs and go on to other things.”
