- Skeem Saam's Koloi is going through a difficult time after his mother's passing
- It affects not only the actor playing him but also the many viewers who enjoy the show
- Tshepo Senatle says he gets sympathy from people when he's out and about on the streets.
Tshepo Senatle, the actor who brings to life Skeem Saam's Koloi, is doing such a good job that people are showing him sympathy when he's walking around in Mzansi's streets.
Koloi's mother recently passed away and since he's only 17, he's going through a lot at the moment.
TimesLIVE reported the actor said that people are feeling very sorry for his character.
Tshepo hasn't been left unaffected by what his character is going through either.
"Koloi is going through a serious turmoil and I can't help but be touched by what's happening in his life.
"He has a little brother and a very grumpy aunt. All his life he's been with his mother, the only person he was able to lean on for help and now that she's gone, Koloi is feeling vulnerable."
The talented young actor also explained that doing his scenes wasn't always the easiest thing.
"Acting is not always easy as it requires a lot of research and determination. I had to do some research on grief because I have to convince eight million viewers who watch Skeem Saam."
Briefly.co.za gathered that Tshepo added Koloi is feeling very alone right now, especially with his aunt being so mean.
"Koloi being the naughty guy he is, he is also human and doesn't deserve what he is currently going through. I think Koloi needs to grab everything by the chest and take whatever is thrown at him. He has nobody else but himself right now.
"It's quite sad that Koloi is left with a mean aunt who is the only person he can call a mother. And a father who just came back in the picture from nowhere and also an uncle who doesn't really show authority."
Here's a quick recap of what's been happening on the show:
