Actor Mothusi Magano will be joining the
cast of Skeem Saam and will play a law student named Tumishang.
According to Skeem Saam publicist Sumaya
Mogola, Tumishang, will be in same class as Pretty Seakamela portrayed by Lerato
Marabe and takes his studies seriously because he failed to finish his degree
when he was studying with Leeto Maputla played by Eric Macheru.
“He is back to finish his degree at Limpopo
University; and like most mature students, he is not here to play. He takes his
studies seriously and wants to finish his degree this time around,” she
Mothuso, who is in his 30s, is quite
excited to be joining the youth soapie and is looking forward to the challenges
it will throw at him.
“I was excited because to be a working
actor is a privilege and I love being there – everybody at Skeem Saam is so
nice. I look forward to going to work, hearing them all joke around, they're
like a family, it's awesome,” he says.
He says there’s something that the viewers
can learn from his character.
“The fact that it’s never too late to do
what your truly passionate about. Challenges come along, but they don’t stay
forever. Audience will also learn that everything isn’t always as it seems,” he
Sumaya can’t confirm how long the character
will be on the show. However, viewers can look forward to seeing his debut on
Friday 20 September.
“Viewers will see Tumishang for a while. We
can’t put a time stamp on that yet though,” she says.
