GIVEN THE BOOT
Please explain, tvplus. Why are four more soapie actors leaving 7de Laan? – LYNDA MARX, KEMPTON PARK Every year around July, 7de Laan (2000- current) negotiates new contracts for their staff. While it’s common for one or two actors to leave the soap, we’re still shocked by three out of the four actors’ contracts not being renewed. Felicity (Melanie du Bois), Kim (Corné Crous) and Pulane (Masego Sehoole) were all given the boot, while Sifiso (Anelisa Phewa) decided to resign after production weren’t keen to let him continue in the role as well as lecture at film and drama school AFDA. Anelisa says that he didn’t want to say goodbye to Sifiso but he had to make a decision. “I’m not a typical celeb, I shy away from fame,” he adds. Felicity’s exit will be on Thursday 6 October and the rest will be gone from our screens in November. We will also soon see less of Oubaas (Pierre van Pletzen), who’s a call actor now. NB!
Say goodbye to Felicity, Kim and Pulane – they’re exiting Hillside.
