The actor says while he’s excited he’ll be returning with his good friend Noxy Mabika who played Thobile, he’s sad to see some actors go. Four actors that have and are leaving the show include; Dawn Thandeka King who played MaNgcobo, Siyabonga Shibe who played Qhabanga, Baby Cele who played Gabisile and Jet Novuka who played Captain Mpambani.

“It’s been a long time coming. I was really excited when I was called to come back to the show. It’s a bonus that I’m coming back with one of my good friends Noxy Mabika who plays Thobile. I can’t wait for people to see what we have in store for them. But it saddens me that some of the people I adore on the show and would have loved to work with are leaving.” 

The actor also states that people on the streets still call him GC and he carries the character wherever he goes.

GC is one of the characters that never left me because everywhere I went, I was reminded of him and how I played him well. I missed bringing him to life and adding my own flavour. One of the reasons that made me jump the opportunity to revive GC was because I was exhausted of being asked why I left the show. I didn’t leave on my own will. It was due to the storyline. I’m happy that people will get answers to their questions.”

Mmamiste Thibedi who is the producer of the show also explained why they’ve brought back some of the old characters.

“We’ve always wanted to bring them back. We were just waiting for the right moment. Shooting with the likes of GC and TK has been amazing. We have missed them on set and the life they bring to the story. Though they are not back not permanently, we are considering for their character’s to live for the whole season.”
