Her career was just starting out, when Soso Rungqu had to give it all up to return home to care for her father.

The Isidingo actress may be well known now, but the journey to get there was not easy.

Soso's father, Sakhiwo, became gravely ill, right when she was achieving recognition as an actress, Briefly.co.za gathered.

"I had to give up the hustle and live (at) home for three years. My father would sometimes spend weeks and months in the hospital. Then he would be better and laugh, then the next thing he had dementia or couldn't walk. If it wasn't diabetes, epilepsy, kidney failure, hypertension or blood clots in the brain, it was something else. One day his body couldn't take it anymore and it shut down," she said.

When her father died in 2015, the 34-year-old actress said she was devastated, despite knowing how ill he was.

Nevertheless, acting was her dream, and she returned to build her career. Now, she's a regular on screen, starring as Morongwa on Isidingo.

Some of Soso's scenes on the show have gone viral, shared by fans who have nothing but good things to say about her.
