Two-time Emmy nominated actress, Thuso Mbedu is reportedly axed from local popular soapie, Generations: The Legacy.
In the soapie, Mbedu played a role of Okuhle, a girl from the homelands who is trying to keep up with urban lifestyle.
Sunday Sun reveals that soapie producers didn’t know how to pursue her character further.
“Expectations were that the character would grow into a full-time role, but because it wasn’t strong enough, it didn’t work,” a source told the paper.
“I was never going to be there for long. My understanding was that I would be there for at least a period of four months and then maybe something more,” Thuso confirmed.
Thuso recently bagged her second International Emmy Awards nomination, and this year it’s for her role of Winnie on Is’thunzi.
The award ceremony will take place on 19 November 2018 in New York.
Yesterday I posted a pic of myself on Instagram. I wanted to say "#WCW the last time I woman crushed myself I got an iEmmy nomination" but I got scared. I didn't want to feel like I'm boasting or whatever. So I didn't caption it that way. Meanwhile, God knew. My second nomination pic.twitter.com/ctyflg3IWS
