Generations cast ‘saddened’"We are saddened by this development, but remain steadfast in our goal to ensure fair working conditions for ourselves as creative professionals," they said.It's not clear how the SABC plans to handle the exit of major actors from the popular soap, who went on strike last Monday.Generations episodes are recorded six weeks in advance, which means that a highly dramatic change is in store for the prime-time soap when the actors will suddenly disappear, without warning, on-screen at the end of September.Whether the massive number of characters will simply disappear in an abrupt reset of the soap, or whether new actors will suddenly be replacing them at extremely short notice is not clear.Generations will continue"The SABC and MMSV Productions would like to assure the public that measures have been put in place to ensure the future of Generations," says the SABC in a statement.
The week-long strike which started on Monday a week ago, was the second strike by the Generations actors who were ordered to report to work on Wednesday.The Generations actors that took part in the strike and who are now out of the show include: Anga Makubalo (MJ), Atandwa Kani (Samora), Katlego Danke (Dineo), Mandla Gaduka (Choppa), Menzi Ngubane (Sibusiso), Nambitha Mpulwana (Mawande), Patrick Shai (Patrick), Slindile Nodangala (Ruby), Sophie Ndaba (Queen), Seputla Sebogodi (Kenneth), Thami Mnqolo (Senzo), Thato Molamu (Nicholas), Winnie Ntshaba (Khetiwe), Zenande Mfenyana (Nolunthu), Zikhona Sodlaka (Priska) and Zolisa Xaluva (Jason).
