There are those Mzansi TV drama shows which they cast actors without making it real. The Mzansi Magic’s mini drama series; Grootboom and Sons and the SABC 1’s popular soap opera; Generations: The Legacy are the perfect examples of bad casting. In Grootboom and sons, Sibulele Gqilitshana was playing the character of a mother to a son (Bongile Mantsai) who is even older than her, imagine!
Now in Generations:The Legacy they have just brought a man who seems to be in his 40s yet given a character of Ayanda‘s father. How shouldn’t have chosen him, that man is too young to be Ayanda’s father even his physical appearance denies that.
The Generations: The Legacy social media official page recently shared a scene picture of Ayanda’s father arriving at Ayanda’s house. The subtitle reads: ‘Your old man misses you’. Then caption of the caption of the post reads: “Tsii! Ayanda’s father is in town, but she wants nothing to do with him”.
Viewers of the show were so surprised to see such a young man given a role of an old man. They even dyed his hair and beard with white yet still doesn’t seem convincing that he’s an old man.
The comments from viewers were like:
“This guy is too young to be Ayanda’s father”
“Are there not other actors? Why did they give him this character?”
