The Queen actor Loyiso MacDonald has opened up about not being able to speak any vernacular language in a recent episode of Podcast and Chill with Mac G. Even on the popular telenovela, Loyiso speaks only English.
During the interview, Loyiso also revealed that he is a committed atheist. An atheist is a person who disbelieves or lacks belief in the existence of God or gods.
Mac G took to Instagram and shared snaps they took on the day of the interview. He captioned his post:
"I really think I need to start watching The Queen, this guy is way too cool. For a minute he almost converted me into an atheist but I still love my God shem."
Loyiso, who plays Kagiso Khoza on The Queen, also shared that he doesn't know his biological father. The award-winning star, as expected, also discussed the art of acting with Mac G.
"I'm not a spokesperson for universities and tertiary institutions but when it comes to art - you don't need a degree to become an actor. The most famous actors on the planet have a certificate at best."
He expressed that acting is simple as you just need certain skills.
"You need to learn to use your body, you need to learn to use your voice, you need to learn to analyse text because acting first and foremost is an intellectual thing."
On his thoughts of acting during the social media era, Loyiso said:
"In the time that I have been working on TV, the whole social media game has changed a lot of things. Where I still remember the first time I was asked how many social media followers I had at an audition. It threw me off because it has got nothing to do with acting."
Some of the star's fans have reacted to his interview with Mac G. Check out some of their comments below:
"Enjoyed this episode so much."
"Your calmness is so contagious I mean. I enjoyed watching this podcast."
"I enjoyed listening to you. Thanks."
"So mara you are atheist. Very interesting."
