Motlatsi Mafatshe has joined the award-winning telenovela, The River.
The star plays the character of Cobra's cousin, Fose. He has already made his debut on the hit South African show.
Motlatsi has expressed that he hopes his storyline on the show will be a lengthy one.
Motlatsi told Daily Sun that he has joined a winning team.
"I got a call from the writers, and they asked me to come through. They said they didn’t know how I’d fit into the story, but that they’d find a way because they had always wanted to work with me.
"Now they’re trying to see if my character can gel in with the other characters. Maybe this will be a long-term thing if all goes well."
He told the publication that Fose is like the rest of his family.
"They have zero emotional intelligence and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. He doesn't care what he sees."
The actor described The River as the best show he has ever been in. He said the cast members were also "amazing".
Motlatsi made a name for himself with his stellar performances on Isidingo. The actor played the character of Sechaba Moloi on the soapie, which recently ended after decades on our screens.
Viewers of Isidingo, which aired its last episode some months ago, will be excited to know that their fave is back on Mzansi's small screens.
In other news relating to the show, Briefly.co.za reported that Ferry Jele has been heaped with praise for her directing skills. Ferry also plays the character of Vero on the popular drama, which has won a whopping 10 South African Film and Television Awards this year.
Viewers believe she definitely has the magic touch when it comes to putting together the perfect scenes. Ferry took to social media to thank Mzansi for showing her so much love.
"I am deeply touched and moved by the amount of love everyone has shown me. My timeline literally brought me to tears. (I am) eternally grateful. Thank you."
