- Mduduzi Mabaso urges more actors to learn about the film industry and not just solely on their acting skills
- The actor feels that the more you know about what goes on behind the scenes will help improve the industry
- He hopes that one day SA’s TV and film industry will get the same respect as its international counterparts
Seasoned actor Mduduzi Mabaso has encouraged other actors to pursue their craft as well as further their education because success in entertainment industry is not guaranteed.
Mduduzi will be featuring in a new TV series called, ‘Imbewu’ and will be playing a self-made millionaire but his new role made him reflect on his own life.
The actor believes that if he had the same amount of money as his character does, then he would invest that money back into his education.
Mduduzi believes that education is one of the most important things, even in the TV and film industry and feels that all actors should value learning because it will help them in the long run.
Briefly.co.za learned that some actors just enjoy living the high life as soon as they think they have made it big, while others still help out on set and get involved behind the scenes, these are the people that Mduduzi believes will have better careers.
TimesLIVE reports that some of his fellow actors and actresses have stepped behind the camera to learn more about production and directing and he feels that this is the only way that the industry as a whole can improve.
While Mduduzi has been involved in some successful projects locally such as ‘Five Fingers for Marseilles’ and ‘Rhythm City’, he has also been involved in international films like ‘Blood Diamond’ and ‘Hotel Rwanda’.
He has mentioned that he would like to give directing a go, but he is more focussed on his acting career at the moment.
Mduduzi speculates that sooner or later you will see more of Mzansi’s actors getting involved with the creative process behind the lens and it would be a major investment to the industry.
