- Thuso Mbedu’s character on ‘Generations: The Legacy’ will be written off the show in the next few episodes
- The show’s writers and producers have decided to let her go because they are battling to keep the role interesting for her
- Fans of ‘Generations’ were sceptical about the new character, however Thuso managed to win them over in the short time that she has been on the show
Thuso Mbedu’s role on ‘Generations: The Legacy’ will be coming to an end after the show’s producer decided that they no longer need her character, Okuhle.
The actress had only joined the cast a few months ago as a long-lasting cast member but sadly, the writers just can’t seem to find a way to keep Okuhle in the storyline anymore.
Gaaratwe Mokhethi, the show’s publicist, confirmed the news of Thuso’s departure from ‘Generations’, but the producers and the actress’ agency are in the process of making arrangements for her to possibly return to her role in the future.
While Mzansi may have had mixed feelings about Thuso joining the ‘Generations’ cast, Gaaratwe states that she managed to win fans over as Okuhle and it will be a shame to see her go.
ZAlebs reports that the writers were struggling to come up with new ideas to keep Thuso’s role more interesting and to push her capabilities as an actress, but sadly, they hit a dead end.
According to the writers, Okuhle’s storyline had become boring and predictable so their only option was to write her off the soapie for now, until they can think of something more interesting for her.
Briefly.co.za gathered that the show’s producers were also concerned that the role was not strong enough for Thuso, especially since she has earned herself two Emmy nominations.
The actress has proved that she unsurpassed talent and the producers felt that it was not fair to hold her back with such a weak role.
