Sometimes, when a story is really good, it can trick people into thinking it's real, and that's what's happening with the Vutha Virus in popular soapie, Generations. Candice Modiselle talked about people's reaction to the virus.
Popular soapie, Generations, has its fans believing that the virus affecting characters is a real thing that could kill South Africans.
The Vutha Virus is considered a serious problem, but it's fictional - something that fans of the show seem to forget.
Candice Modiselle plays the role of Lerato in Generations, and she had an experience in which people thought she had the virus for real.
TshisaLIVE reports Candice currently has a severe cold, and when she went to a store for some medication, people were scared of catching what she has.
"I didn't understand how large the concern was until it dawned on me that I am currently an embodiment of death.
"People were tiptoeing around me and ducking. They wanted to assist me but they weren't quite sure."
Candice added that she hopes viewers can look past the virus and see the message behind it.
"Every single one of us is dancing with death and moments like this, when you are on your deathbed, you realise how important family and truth is. I think there is a hope and love aspect to it too. It is about what really matters when we are looking at the bright white light."
