Is the Generations drama over?
Oh, just when we thought the drama would drag on, it seems there's hope. The fired Generations actors could be getting back to work soon.
Minister of Arts and Culture Nathi Mthethwa said the actors will find a common solution leading to the actors returning to work. "We are proud to announce that we have been able to open talks between the SABC and the actors after a difficult week of high emotion, tenstion and conflict that made it hard for the parties to find each other," Nathi said in a statement.
He added that it is a significant step in the right direction that both the actors and the SABC have arrived at a stage where they are willing to engage with the intent to find a solution to the matter.
He said both parties were willing to look into the matter of getting all the cast members back at work soonest.
The 16 fired cast members were expected to hold a press conference this afternoon to tell their side of the story.
