It is an honour for a soldier to die on the battlefield, and apparently, Jerry Mofokeng says he thinks he will die as he lived - on set. The veteran actor says he doesn't mind if he 'bows out' that way.
Jerry Mofokeng has been acting for as long as we can remember. He's been in many amazing movies like Tsotsi and won several awards.
The 66-year-old has also been in international films like Lord of War and Safe House and is currently seen in local productions like Scandal and The Girl From St Agnes.
Clearly, Jerry loves acting and has been one of South Africa's best for years, and he doesn't seem to want to step away or retire any time soon.
In fact, according to a report by TimesLIVE, Jerry thinks he'll spend his last moments on set.
I think I will probably die on set. I don't mind bowing out on set. Miriam Makeba did it and I would be honoured to die doing what I love most.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Jerry has had a number of medical procedures in the last few years.
He also had surgery to his spine, but this will not keep him down.
I have had all these operations but when I am on set you will not see it. I come alive. It excites me. I am still hungry for more and that is what keeps me young.
We love seeing Jerry on our screens and hope to see him for many more years.
Despite being such a legend in the industry, Jerry is always humble and kind, especially with younger actors.
I have acted with complete giants and it was inspiring but it could also be intimidating. I know what that is like. That is why I always try and have a little chat with young actors and let them know they are doing well and shouldn't be so hard on each themselves.
