Although Mandla Gaduka has been acting for a while, his two most memorable characters to date have been that of Choppa on the SABC 1 soapie Generations as well as the dual role of Damian on the eTv dramas, Ashes to Ashes and Broken Vows.
While on Generations, Choppa was the ultimate, well-meaning comedic relief as most of his efforts to make it big never panned out. He also made the way for Getty’s character after he unknowingly took her virginity at her 21st birthday party. Shortly thereafter, he found himself at the mercy of her scary brother, Cosmo Diale.
After that Generations drama that saw 16 actors from the show’s main cast out of a job, Gaduka found himself starting over on eTv drama series, Ashes to Ashes as the slightly dramatic, but ever-so-colourful funeral director Damian.
The public fell so deeply in love with Damian that he found himself reprising the role in eTV’s Broken Vows where he is currently dealing with the bombshell about his new boyfriend’s wife and child showing up.
We have to say, we LOVE, love, love Damian. But please reach out to us on social media @ZAlebs and let us know who your fave is between Choppa and Damian?
