Uzalo actor Khaya Dladla has revealed that he had to "seat out" some opportunities in order to avoid being typecast.
The star, who has just returned to the popular SABC 1 show, shared that many Mzansi productions offered him roles that were similar to the one he plays in Uzalo.
The talented thespian plays the role of GC in the most-watched telenovela. Khaya said he received many offers from other shows when he exited Uzalo early in 2020.
He did not appear on our screens for a while after leaving Uzalo but says the move was deliberate to avoid playing the same role in another TV series. Khaya told TshisaLIVE:
"I had to sit out some opportunities because everyone was offering me an opportunity to act as a different version of GC."
Khaya added that he couldn't allow himself to be typecast because he was vigilant to that as he is also a casting director. Khaya bagged a macho role in eHostela early this year. He played the role of Nxebalendoda, which was the total opposite of GC.
In other TV shows news, Briefly News reported that Uzalo star TK Dlamini also made his comeback in the most watched telenovela on Tuesday night, 20 April. The talented actor took to Instagram earlier on the day to announce the good news.
TK is one of the cast members who are making their return to the show to boost its ratings. The popular actor told his fans to meet him at 8.30pm. He captioned his post:
"So I guess the cat is out the bag. Tonight, let’s meet at 20:30 on SABC1 @uzalo_sabc1."
The star is back to play the role of Mastermind from KwaMashu. His excited fans took to his comment section to share their thoughts on his return. Actor Khaya Dladla, who plays the role of GC on the show, said:
"Can’t wait for this."
