Generations: The Legacy’s Junior Singo who plays the part of Mpho in the soapie says his baby face will earn him a lot of teenage roles in the Industry.
In an interview with Drum Singo says that despite there being less job opportunities, he knew that his face would benefit him in the long run.
He said “it might not work for me now but it’ll work for me later. I have friends younger than me who look older and they’re getting older roles. They are getting more jobs because of how they look, but I know I’ll have a longer career than them.”
“Every actor will tell you we are exploited and we’re not paid enough. But, in music, we work for later,” Junior added.
The 28-year-old, who entered the entertainment world ten years ago, said bursting into the spotlight as a child star came with its advantages and disadvantages.
Junior Singo concluded by saying “I’m fortunate that my experience in the industry gave me a distinct opportunity to grow with the character. Now, no matter what role I am given, whether as a 15-year-old or a 26-year-old, I can do wonders with it. I have also been in the industry long enough not to be phased by it. I know how it works both in film and television productions and that’s a blessing.”
