GIVEN THE BOOT

TV Plus (South Africa) - - YOU ASK -

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.
