- YoTV child star, Tiisetso Thoka, was just dubbed by Mzansi as an Oscar-worthy actor
-Playing the role of a mute on 'The Heard' was a challenge like no other, but he killed it with a mind blowing performance
- Tiisetso cannot believe the reviews and is filled with gratitude
Tiisetso Thoka was faced with a challenge that not many actors come across in their career. After taking a role as a mute on ‘The Herd’, the young actor had to morph into a character of abnormal habits.
It could not have been easy for Tiiseto to familiarise himself with silence, especially as he is a person who loves to talk.
For several hours a day, he had to be in complete silence, reported Times Live. Not only did he have to do this, he had to make it look natural, like it was a part of who he was.
Taking on the role of Dingane on ‘The Herd’ has helped Tiiseto grow as an actor. He conquered challenges that he never though he would even have to face.
Tiisetso played role so well that people are calling it an Oscar-worthy performance.
Briefly.co.za learnt that it was the scene after Tiiseto’s character was silenced by witchcraft that had Mzansi wiping tears of pride.
Reviews of excellence were coming in left right and centre. The young actor could not believe it and was overwhelmed with gratitude.
The role was a challenge from the beginning as Tiisetso had never played a role of this nature before. He said that growing up in a rural area helped him transform into his role, but there was a lot more to it.
From being a YoTV star to becoming the actor that Mzansi dubbed Oscar-worthy, Tiisetso is climbing those levels. We cannot wait to see how he wow’s Mzansi next.
