Rapulana Seiphemo is leaving his Generations character Tau Mogale behind for a new and exciting role on The Queen and it is not easy.
Having played Tau for an incredible 18 years, Rapulana is leaving behind what feels like a part of him.
Briefly.co.za knows how sad fans are that Rapulana is leaving the show, but it is clear to see that this decision was not an easy one for the veteran actor either.
Speaking to Drum magazine, Rapulana expressed how being given the chance to play the role of Hector Sebata on whilst working with his former co-star Connie Ferguson again was an opportunity he just couldn’t pass up.

"Connie is like a sister to me. I respect her hard work and professionalism ... they presented a compelling case that enticed me to consider their proposal. But it was only after several discussions and meetings that I was convinced to join."
Despite the extreme excitement of the new role, Rapulana did express how hard it was for him to walk away from Generations and his character Tau – that is family.
"I'm not yet done shooting with Generations but will soon start my stint on The Queen. I'm not sure how the grand exit will be, only the writers know, but I'm sure it'll leave jaws on the floor. I love Generations. It's been my home for many years ... Tau was part of me for many years and anything is possible in the acting world."
